Beautiful "Camille" a Michelle Perkett Digi

Hi everyone, hope you are having a fabulous Saturday.  It's been a busy week, with starting on a new DT with Michelle Perkett Studio, and having an incredible visit with my daughter, I still managed to find some time to color and make a few cards.  I wanted to share the lovely "Camille", a new release at Michelle's Etsy Store.  I hope  you pop in and check out the amazing images Michelle has created.  I'm sure  you will fall in love with each and every one of them.  I know I did! 

Isn't she just adorable!  I wanted to use the color combo of  Pink, Purple and Green.  I really love the three colors together.  I just got the new Martha Stewart Flower Shower border punch, and couldn't wait to use it on the card.  I also used her large dot border punch.  The flowers and swirls were cut on my cricut.  I stitched around the designer paper (also Martha Stewart) with purple thread, and then in just two corners with green thread.  I used Stickles Crystal Clear on her hair, tail and bows.  For some shine I used Aleene's Paper glaze on the pink coral.  Too bad it's hard to see the shine in the picture.  I am very very happy with how she turned out.

I just wanted to remind you that every Tuesday we  have a challenge on Michelle's Blog.  The current challenge is Anything Goes.  If your are new to Michelle's images, you can find some freebies on Paper Craft Planet.  The best part about joining our challenges is you have a chance to win a $10.00 shopping spree at Michelle's Etsy store.  I hope you will join in on the fun, and I look forward to seeing your entries.
