Emily has crafted since she was 5 and is now designing on her own. She did acetate smooshing for her background and stamped Grumpy with Versafine and used clear embossing powder. She added just a bit of color with Zig brush markers. She chose the sentiment which seems to fit Grumpy quite well. She asked about embellishing. I threw out some suggestions. She opted to stitch, went through my home made stitching templates and chose the flourish, then made up her own stitches in the corner. I did case her card but hers is much better than mine. Thanks for stopping by.

This is fabulous!!! The young kids seem to be getting more and more talented. I think it is wonderful that she can be mentored by you Nancy. I love the soft colored bg with the emphasis on the grumpy penguin. :>)

Wow! This is fabulous! I love everything about it from the gorgeous background to the beautiful stitching. The image just speaks for itself (grin), and she chose the perfect sentiment. You taught her well! I hope she's as proud of this as she should be!
