Sponsor for Challenge C -
Stamping Bella

"Emily, owner of Stamping Bella, is definitely a girl who wants to have fun! To celebrate her spirit and the spirit of Stamping Bella, I am challenging you to show me what you and your girlfriends do to have some fun! For an extra bit of flair, throw in some some 1980's-ish colors and/or DP! Please use the keyword WCMD09C when uploading your cards and come back and post them here, too, so everyone can see what you've made. Also leave a quick note sharing what you like to do when you want to have some fun!"

I chose Bookwormabella because after stamping, my favorite thing to do for fun is to read! I also thought it would be perfect because the shirt looks "belted" and the jeans remind me of "tuck & roll". LOL! I didn't have a plan when I started with the exception of an oval for the large image (and because I just felt a desire to do something else besides a rectangle), and the bright 80s colors. The brocade blue mat is sponged with brocade blue using a twisting motion of the wrist to add a bit of texture. I chose to use a suntan skin tone, which I hardly ever use, because I was obsessed with trying to get a tan when I was a teenager. AND because I don't remember being worried about skin cancer back then. Too bad, too. I've had skin cancer and I continue to get check-ups and moles removed every 6 months.

Another very cute design. Yes, my second best thing to do after stamping is also reading. Very, very cute card.
