Fabulous Hello Kitty

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I'm so glad this week is almost over. It's been a rough one around here, and I'm sooooo ready for a little break. And since he's worked so hard following me around all week, I'd be overjoyed if my migraine would take the weekend off, too! Hear that, migraine??? Scram! LOL

Well, it's time for another Viva la Verve! challenge over on the Verve forum and one of the inspiration photos this week was especially for me! Isn't this Hello Kitty apron from Etsy just adorable? EEEK! I've been resisting the urge to buy one since Amber peeked the photos to the team earlier this week! And look at this one, the lace and vintage pattern of it just make me giddy! Hello Kitty heaven, I tell you! :)


Anyhow, I knew as soon as I saw the inspiration photo, that I needed to pull out the fabulous Hello Kitty Spring Set of embossing folders that Laurie gave me. I had to tweak the sketch a bit to accommodate my HK face, but it was totally worth it! She's embossed on white and cut out with Classic Circle Nestabilities. I inked her whiskers, nose and eyes with a black multiliner pen and then carefully colored her flower with Copics, adding a few polka dots to it with a colorless blender. The flowers on either side are from the Love's Flower set and colored with Copics and accented with liquid pearls and a mixture of glitter and diamond glaze. The black strips are a flocked zebra print that's just fabulous in person, but hard to see in the picture. I embossed both the hot pink paper {I promise it's not as neon as it looks - the colors just wouldn't photograph right!} from BasicGrey and the pink pirouette paper with a Cuttlebug folder, then added some bling and a ribbon up top to finish the card. Finished size is 5.5" square. And I chose the "fabulous just the way you are" sentiment from Love's Flower because it was something I really needed to remind myself of this week.

Hope you all know just how fabulous you are, EXACTLY the way you are today. Have an awesome weekend!
