"Ever After"

Hi krafty friends! This week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is a sketch brought to us by the lovely and talented Pam Varnell. Today is also another round of sneak peeks and the Krafty Girls have all used brand new May images from Annie Rodrigues.

For my card, I chose to use this gorgeous romantic stamp called "Ever After". What a sweet couple. :)  This image is quite versatile as it could be used for weddings, anniversaries, proms, fairy tale cards or perhaps even Valentine's day. The papers are all from My Mind's Eye Madison Ave.



"Ever After" was stamped on Neenah with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. I used my Oval and Scalloped Oval Spellbinders for matting the image.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95  His hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 Her Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59, YR31  Tux: C3, C5, C7, C9  Dress: E50, E41, E43, E47  Flowers and red accents: R22, R29, R59

The inside includes one of two sentiments that comes with "Ever After"...the other sentiment says "Congratulatoins".



We hope you play along with Pam's sketch as you could be the lucky winner of the stamp used on Pam's card. Just make sure to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your submission to be eligible.
