Some Odd Girl - Grow Everyday

Happy Monday All!!  I'm back after a relaxing and creative weekend away with my family.  I'm popping in to post another creation I made to submit to the Some Odd Girl Guest Design Challenge.  My creation today uses Grow - one of the newest members in the Some Odd Girl family.  The Nouveau collection is simply BEAUTIFUL!!  I've inked her up using my Momento ink and colored her in with my Copics.  I paper pieced her outfit using papers from MME's Lost and Found Two - Sunshine pack.  In order to make the depth of her left arm seem real, after piecing her top, I then stamped her again, colored her arm in and trimmed it out and added on top of her shirt so that it has the proper perspective.  This is a trick that I learned from my darling IRL friend Joanne B.  She's insanely clever that one!  ;)

I added a few self-adhesive metallic pearls to her hair and one to the tie on her beautiful top.  I stamped her on a Sizzix die and then backed it and hand trimmed it out in Chocolate cardstock.  The clouds and corner embellishment are from the same stamp set.  I inked the clouds and hand trimmed them out.  The main layer as well as the clouds are popped up on foam adhesive.  I added scallop strips of text paper, rhinestone flourishes, red self-adhesive pearls, ribbon and a bit of vintage lace trim as my embellishments. 

I love Kristy's beautiful images and have been totally enjoying myself creating for this challenge! I've also entered this into this week's SOG challenge here!! 

I hope you have a beautiful day and have been inspired to create!  I know this little sweetie will be headed into my DD's lunchbox tomorrow!!  It's the perfect message for a young girl...just so sweet!
