Thank You Card no 2 for DT project for PPCC blog 439

This post showcases a 2nd card using Emma in her cool cap image from FSSD for the DT inspiration for PPCC's #439th weekly challenge!

FSSD is short for Fred She Said Designs, the prize sponsor for #439.

Card #2= 

*note: PPCC blog challenges are always anything goes that is paper-crafted (hence the name of the blog); so don't try to link-up candles, or crocheted afghans, or smocked baby's christening needs to be paper product creations like tags, bookmarks, cards, scrapbook layouts, planner layouts, TN layouts, etc. 

FSSD's ID badge (their info and prize details can be found on the PPCC's #439 post)

edit: I forgot to include earlier the other prize sponsor's badge of #439 at PPCC blog= SheepSki Designs

Design notes for Card #2:

1. digital image came pre-colored--however--I added blue-purple and raspberry pink to her blouse, socks, shorts, and cap and just the raspberry pink to the pink ruffled trim.
2. I think I've tweaked the image enough to add my own spin to it to not be disqualified from challenge blogs that don't accept pre-colored digis. I even added the squiggly border outline around the image.
3. all background papers have had their edges inked black
4. mulberry patterned paper that's heart-shaped and the banner cut print paper are from partial set of large scrapbook papers that I'm trying to wipe out! and the purple/mulberry cardstock large rectangle scrap is from a partial set of CS trying to be annihilated as well!!!


Design note #4's references are to these above 2 photos of some of the partial sets that I added in mid-June to bash (for BYSS group on Facebook) and add for my stack to use in 2019 (for 100 Pattern Paper Challenge group on Facebook).

Banner stamp and "with love" stamp are from Hampton Art. I don't know who made the no 1 ribbon stamp which I've only showed the medallion part of. The twine's color is repeated in the multi-print paper and the kraft paper base as well as Emma's hair and shoes in the digi. The Emma in her cool cap image is super sweet. I love that there are many repeating colors from the sentiment stamped and stenciled tag I made to the papers and the image. They all combine to make an interesting and darling thank you card!

From the crazy sultry weather in the USA heartland, Becca S
