Mwah, Mwah, Mwah!

 Some exciting news for me!!  I had applied for a guest designer spot at One Crazy Stamper Challenge Blog and was lucky enough to be asked to be the GDer for August.  My first card is for the August Challenge which has a Bingo theme so to enter, you must choose and use three elements to form a Bingo line.
The line I chose to do is the diagonal Pink &  Black, Die Cut/Punch and Ribbon/Twine.  This image is a Stamping Bella stamp designed by Mo Manning and aptly named Little Smooch - it just makes me smile when I see it.  I used One Crazy Stamper`s Bazill textured cardstock - this is the paper I use all the time for my cards because I love the weight, thickness and texture of it.  The image was coloured with Copics (colours listed below), the paper is from Echo Park`s Be Mine collection, the button is Bo Bunny and the ribbon from a monthly club selection at Really ReasonableRibbon.  For the sentiments, I printed them out on Copic Xpress It paper and used the Memory Box  Puffy Clouds die around it.  Lastly, I stitched around the card and added Start Dust Stickles - nothing adds a little glam like Stickles!
Colours:  Dress - RV55, RV06, RV04, RV02, RV10 and then I added a bit of RV34;  Hair- E39, E37, E35, E33, E21; Skin - E13, E11, E00, E000, RV20

Deep Ocean - Anything Goes
