You Make me Smile with a twist……..

Welcome back, I hope you joined us for the Birthday Bash February 21. The winner of my blog candy was comment number 12, Luanne.
Now on with the new challenge. The theme is You Make me Smile and the twist is to use something that is not from your craft room. Here are a few suggestions, pop tabs, twist ties perhaps even a washer. The image I am using is from My Grafico, what a lovely collection of First Communion digi stamps and if you post a project on Clear it out challenge Blog you might just win the set.
For my card I chose  a soft blue base, The fleur dis lis rectangle and  regular rectangle spellbinder dies. I wanted a touch of blue behind the image so I cut and embossed it so I could cut the edge off to put on the blue layer. The flower is from the Stampin’up pretties set, I layered three petals, my twist is I used a hat pin that was floating around in my sewing box plus a couple of beads from a box I bought at a yard sale last year. I used prisma colour pencils and odourless mineral spirits to colour the hair. I’m not sure if it shows or not but I watered down some white opal liquid pearls and painted the veil and dress to give it a shimmer.
Thanks for stopping by today and please join us at Clear it Out I would love to see your project.
