Plain Jane for me today..........

GOOD MORNING!!!



I was looking at the Challenges out there for today and the one over at Secret Saturday really caught my attention with the colors for the Challenge. I knew that I had the perfect scraps of paper in my scraps and pieces bag!! I dug until I found them and found some ribbon that would match. But, the ribbon was really loud so I turned it over so that the brown dots were muted instead of bright. LOL.... I got to thinking okay NOW WHAT??? What image or images should I use? I then decided that it had to be a Tilda (one of my favorite stamp companies). I looked at the Just Magnolia challenge board and the challenge is for animals and/or insects and can use other stamps or sticker and charms for it. So I dug out my cute Whipper Snapper Piggies in the tub stamp and cut one of the pigs off and replaced it with Tilda and bee but I cut the bee off and replaced it with a little bar of soap. So she looks like she is trying to help wash that cute little piggy. I added glaze to the bubbles and a few crystals also.
This card is what I call and quickie for me or a plain Jane. Not much detail to it or not many bellies either.

Thanks for stopping by today........

Have a great weekend,

janny

Your card is just so CUTE! I love the idea of Tilda washing the cute piggy! lol! Great coloring and all the details are just stunning. Brilliant idea to change her holding a bee to a soap. Nice reversed ribbon too. Clever clever girl! Thanks for sharing and for leaving such a nice comment on my blog. Have a great weekend!
