Choose to Shine

Choose to shine. I think we all have days where we need a little encouragement or we need
to give encouragement to someone else and have to be reminded that only we, ourselves,
can make the decision to "shine" and take the steps necessary to do so.  


So today I have this card that was inspired by the color challenge over at
Just Us Girls
and I thought what better colors to "shine" with than these bright  ones.

The doll was stamped twice with a set from Hot Off the Press,
once on white card stock and I colored her hair and skin
with pencil colors and her purse and shoes with markers.
 Then I stamped a second time on the polka dot
paper and cut out her dress and paper pieced.
The white panel was embossed with an mpress embossing folder
called "Karen Frame" and I added the plain and scalloped circle
die cuts on top of the embossed circle.
The "choose to shine" sentiment came from the same stamps set as the doll.
I added the tiny punched flowers with yellow pearls in the centers.
Thanks for taking a look!
