Smile!! - Some Odd Girl Challenge

I so love this Some Odd Girl image and to be quite honest it's for a very selfish reason.  My sweet husband just bought me a new camera.  I'm slowly learning the ins and outs of picture taking without a simple point and shoot.  I am so loving it too!  I was inspired to use this sweet image from Some Odd Girl called Photo Kaylee for this month's sketch challenge at the Some Odd Girl blog!
Such a fun sketch don't you think?  I love the centered portion and the sentiment below.  Photo Kaylee comes with so many cute little stamps too that I used those as well.  The Smile sentiment, the hearts and the little Polaroid photo too.
I always love a good sketch challenge, don't you?  Sketch challenges really help me get out of slumps.  If I feel like I can't create I always turn to this method for inspiration.
I used my Copics for this card.  I used them to color the image and the pearls.  You can click on the picture to see the markers a bit closer.
Now, the GOOD stuff - Kristy is giving away some fabulous prizes.  One prize Fan a new Nouveau girl is for a random winner...
  and her favorite card/sketch will receive TWO clear stamps - Birthday Mae and Baker Mae...
 Amazing prizes!!!  Make sure to join us for our March Sketch challenge so you have a chance at these fabulous prizes!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Also, be on the lookout for a new digi release coming next week from Some Odd Girl!


  1. Love it Melissa. Your card is fabulous!! I bought this stamp and still haven't used it. I keep itching to do so though so perhaps this challenge will bring it out.
    I have been building beds and sewing aprons so I need to stop and take some time to color!!!
