amuse-bouche Day 2

What's Shakin'?

Mandy's World!! Today we get to share this new line of images from A Muse.
Isn't she SO CUTE!! Just wait till you see all the other Mandy's World images. Oh yeah...you are gonna want them all.

I really like bright tropical colors - so I used the new Papaya Solid 4-bar Note card together with Popsicle Pink and black for my Hawaiian Mandy card design. The sentiment "what's shakin'?" is also new.



OK...what else do I have going on with my card...I stamped waves in the background with Popcorn White Chalk Ink. The black flowers are covered with sparkly black glitter. A bunch of sanding on the edges.

I used 2 new colors of Spica Glitter Pens - Mint on top of her grass skirt & Blossom on her bikini top. And...a couple twinkle stickers to finish it off.



So are lovin' all the sneak peeks? Remember - you can find links to each days amuse-bouche on the A Muse Lounge HERE.

Ok, so when I was in 2nd grade I had a dance recital. The song was "if you want to learn to do the hula...all you have to do is shake shake shake". Well THAT is obviously NOT the name...but DEAL WITH IT! We looked Pretty much like this adorable girl here...(except our bellies were probably covered...and we didn't have the cocktails by our feet! ;)
I was the TALLEST girl by a whole freaking head in that class & had to be FRONT and CENTER. I'm not a dancer babe....I'm sure it was comical. Thanks for the trip down memory lane with this ca-UTE card! LOVE THIS HULA GIRL!
