Try It Out Tuesday #38 - Surprise!

I love Tuesdays!  I get to work up cards with the greatest group of stampers and our uber-talented leader, Suzanne, always comes up with the greatest things for us to work on and create.  This week we were asked to create something other than an ornament with one of the new Special Edition Ornament Collection by Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.  I chose to be surprised! 

There's nothing like receiving the gift of a pet.  They can bring so much love into your life and the look on  a child's face when they see this unexpected bundle of joy is priceless.  I have my own little thing, my Hagrid, who I wouldn't trade for the world.  He loves me to distraction and only wants my time and attention.  Oh, how good it feels to be loved and wanted!

This beauty is colored with copics and I used my nestabilities to cut her out and frame her.  Don't you just love this Indian Summer paper?  I could use it forever!  Her dress has, yep, Stickles, and I addede some Glossy Accents to her bow and the ribbon on the package and on the pup's package and ribbon.  The edge is cut out using my MS fancy lattice and added some gorgeous Prima Flowers and spacers and colored half moons on the corners and the middle of the flowers.  So the card wasn't too Christmasy, the sentiment is from a Hero Arts set. 


Oh, I just love her gorgeous face, don't you?  Now head on over to the store blog and see the gorgeous creations that my fellow DT buddies came up with.  I know for a fact you won't be disappointed!

Surprise for the Special Edition Ornament Collection from Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, Indian Summer paper pack from BasicGrey, Prima Flowers, Stickles, spacers, half moon rhinestones, ribbon, MS fancy Lattice Edger, MS branch punch
