Let's put on my Paper Makeup!!

Whoa, hold on to your hats, I've got three Paper Makeup cards to share today! These are my three entries for the design team call.

My first card is using Chelly with Clover, and she just has a certain amount of spunk in her! I love her, especially with her leg kicked up in the back. I used Shimmerz on the shamrock and her wings. The world just seems brighter when you use Shimmerz!!
Card details:
Stamps: Chelly with Clover by Paper Makeup Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Groovy Guava, Choc. Chip, and Wild Wasabi CS and DSP
Accessories: Primas, SU brad, Shimmerz (Celery and Pixie Dust Blingz), SU Scalloped Edge punch, Copics (skin-E21, E00, R20; hair-Y21; Outfit-YR02, YR07, G24; Shoes-E33; Wings-E40; Shamrock-G24)

The second card uses a quote as the main focus, and for some reason the idea popped into my head while I was in the shower. For some reason, I zone out in the shower and have brief moments of clarity! I love this quote, and I equate hope and butterflies together in my own mind. The quote reads, "When the world says 'Give Up' Hope whispers, 'Try it one more time.'" Ain't that the truth!!!!

Card details:

Stamps: "When the world gives up..." by Paper Makeup Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Purely Pomegranate
Paper: Urban Prairie by Basic Grey, Very Vanilla and Purely Pomegranate CS

The final card is with the ever ethereal Penelope from Paper Makeup stamps. She is definitely a beauty. I cut out the image, as I do with a lot of them, but I didn't realize how difficult that was going to be with the curls on the train of her dress. Next time, I will cut around her!!
