Waiting For...

The new Peekers drawn by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD are so fun.  I am sharing my very favorite of them all with you today.  This is Waiting For....




I imagine all the things she could be waiting for while peeking out that window.  Daddy to come home, Grandma and Grandpa to arrive, the new baby brother or sister, all sorts of wonderful happy things!

I used some of the Webster's Pages paper pack and incorporate the beautiful butterflies in the design.  This paper is great because it is double sided and I like both sides!  They also coordinate well together.  After layering everything up, I used my Sew Easy to add some accents on the bottom and top side of the card.  Then I aged it all a bit with some brown ink. 

Challenges:
Truly Scrumptious #55 - Vintage
Flutter By Wednesday #151- anything goes with a butterfly, fairy or angel
Tip Top Tuesday #30 - Open
Pink Paper Paradise- Make It Monday #33
Corrosive Challenge #121- Home Sweet Home
Lets Ink It Up #13 - use rubber or clear stamp- no digis
Pile It On #16 - use a rubber stamp



Get Inky!
