 Today is a very fun post.  This is Stampingbella's SENIOR-ita WANDA and I love her!  As soon as I saw  these senior-ita gals, I had to have them and have been wanting to do them up ever since.  This beautiful babe is Wanda and I'm pretty sure we all know a Wanda.  She's a lady who has a wonderful sense of fun and the biggest heart you will ever find.  I actually wouldn't mind being a Wanda!
I haven't entered a Stampingbella challenge for ages and as soon as I saw this week's sketch, well, I knew Wanda was my gal!  Here's Em's 'Sketchy Poo' and it's easy peasy:
I have to tell you, I started off great and was feeling pretty smug, thinking that for the first time in ages, a card was just going to 'fall into place' for me and it did... until I looked at the sketch again and 'oh..noooo...', I had not realized there was a division from corner to corner.  So off came everything... and I do mean everything because if I remember correctly, it was when I was taking the pics that I realized my mistake.  No, not mistake... they are not mistakes, they are 'creating opportunities'! I have a few people this card will be so perfect for.  The only thing I would change is I wish I would have put a little bit of PURPLE in her hair!
You can get this image from Chelsea at Paper Trail - I don't see it in the shop but she's got terrific customer service and will order it for you in a heartbeat.  She's got a great selection too.  And... she sells Frantage and I LOVE Frantage!
Or... you can scoot on over to Stampingbella and snag it there.
I'll be back this weekend with my first product review for Paper Trail so thanks for stopping by and see you later!  MWAAAAAH!
