Lulu had a Steamboat......steamboat had a bell....


Does anyone remember that song???? Thats all I think about when I see the Lulu Collection from Stamping Bella. LOL LOL......... I know there are different versions to this song as well.....but not for blog content...

I was so excited with Monday being a holiday and I had all my house duties caught up I would be able to spend the day creating......well let me tell you..... It took me an entire day to do 1 card and at the end of it all was not real impressed. Needless to say I was very frustrated and thought I was loosing my MOJO.

Until.......After work on Tuesday I threw together this card in about an hours time from start to finish. It amazes me how you can spend hours and get nothing accomplished and then basically without much thought put together this card in less that an hour. "What is with that"

I chose The Pink Elephant Colour challenge using red, black, yellow and white and also the Flourishes sketch challenge .... which I did in reverse. The base of the card is in sparkly black, layered with some DP with a strip of pale yellow edged with MS punch. The image is from Stamping Bella called Gertie from the Lulu Collection which was coloured with prisma pencils with yellow glitter added to the edge of her skirt and to the butterflies. Layered the image on red and yellow cut from nesties and finished with a red button tied with black ribbon.

I have days like that too when it seems the more time I put into a card the less I like it! Then later will come back and make something I love in short time. This is fantastic! Love the colors and the way you colored in the image. Beautiful!

Brenda, this is just lovely. I love the red, black and cream colors together. The border punch and the button with the ribbon are fabulous choices on here also.

This is adorable. I can totally relate to spending hours on a card and not being happy with it. It happens more than I care to admit.
