First. Ever. Shaped. Card!

Be forgiving! :) This is my first ever shaped card. I was kinda winging it. I used my We-r Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Mini Scallop Punch to cut out the shape. I started by cutting the mat. I then cut the card. I knew enough NOT to cut the top off so I could have a card... just wasn't sure how to follow through with it. I'm happy enough how it came out for sure though... considering I didn't know WHAT I was doing! ;) lol

Before I show it to you, let me give you a heads up. I got kinda carried away with the scalloped circles. Maybe a tid bit with the feathers as well... and well... maybe even with the glitter. :-\ I tried to make myself stop plenty of times. It was almost an out of body experience! ;) lol I. Just. Couldn't. STOP! So... with that...

Here is the card:
All card stock, feathers and printed paper is from my stash. Flowers are from Michael's $1 bins. I used Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle SM dies on the circles behind the image. The smaller pink one is from a Michael's scalloped circle punch. I dabbed Stickles in Firefly along the outer circle and along the edge of the ruffles on her dress, Platinum on what I interpreted as rhinestones on her jewelry and crown and Cotton Candy on the boa feathers. I colored the image with Copic markers and colored all her jewelry and the crown with a silver gel pen. I absolutely love this Mo's Digital Pencil image called Diva. I have SEVERAL young nieces who fit this bill! ;) I was feeling pretty cocky and thought I could handle the folds in her dress. I had watched a couple of videos and thought I had a decent grip on the concept. Kinda different between watching a video and actually doing it. In case you didn't know! :-\ The stamped sentiment comes from Raisin Boat's Onesie clear stamp set. Oh, and in case you didn't know this, feathers... are just as bad as glitter! I made the mistake of dumping them out of the bag to find the right colors. It was a NIGHTMARE getting them back in the bag but I didn't shed a tear! ;) lol

I am submitting this card into Mo's Digital Challenge. This is for Challenge #183 - Anything Goes With a Mo Manning Image
