Bombshell's Hump Day Hop

With all the hub-hub of the holidays, the Bombshell Stamps Design Team has taken a break from our Hump Day Hops. Well, it's time for us to get started again!!! With Shannon's permission, this hop is an 'anything goes' hop, so there is no 'theme' or challenge. That's fine with me! I need to make SO many thank you cards for holiday gifts, so that's what I'll be doing for a while! Here is one that I made for a friend. It's a very simple card, but I just love it!! I love the color combination and I just LOVE the image. I think this sailor girl image is my all-time favorite Bombshell image! She's gorgeous!

First off all, I used Stampin' Up's textured Cameo Coral cardstock for the card base. I then attached a layer of Basic Black, and then a layer of the coolest patterned paper (I have NO idea who makes it...it was part of a blog candy that I won, but isn't it pretty??). The image is from Bombshell Stamps' Ahoy, Sailor. She is stamped on GP110 white cardstock and colored using a combination of Stampin' Up and Copic markers. I punched the image and a layer of Basic Black out using my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities. I sponged around the edge of the image panel using Cameo Coral ink. The large black brads are from Recollections (Michael's). I am very pleased with this simple card and I hope you like it, too!
