Happy New Year!!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013! We are so excited to share the great stamp sets we are releasing this month and the months to come. 
 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" OH Baby"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
"Not So Ugly"

 
For today, I have gone outside of my regular style.  This is more layers and more intense colors than normal for me.  I just had to use rich colors with the red wine I envisioned.  I stamped and colored my image and then colored some more over the top of that.  My six year old was cheering me on.  I think she was excited that Mommy wasn't so rigid and neat, but was messy and coloring out of the lines a bit.  I found some complimentary papers and some sheer organdy ribbon.  I also clear embossed over the bottle and the glass.  Here's a close up. 
That's all from me today!  Have a wonderful day and enjoy the hop.  Off you to go see what Sue has created.

Very pretty and elegant card. The solid color in the BG with the pretty DP on the panel looks lovely. And your bow is a touch of elegance.

Beautiful card. Stunning coloring.

MariLynn said...

Great card. I'm glad you were able to get out of your comfort zone. I guess I'm just too rigid. It would be almost impossible to color outside the lines and be happy with it, but it does look amazing on your card, so I might have to give it a try sometime.
