* Ruby *

The challenge for the Stamping Addict group this month - the new group I recently joined on Splitcoast Stampers - is to case  one card from Marilyn's  blog.
Wow....where to start??? Take a look at her awesome well made and full of wonderful paper art creation! Check out how utterly incredible her coloring is
...she's so multitalented! When I grow up I wanna color just like her ! ♥

For my case I chose this beautiful card of hers :

I {{{{{{ heart }}}}}} Mo Manning stamps! I am a sucker for any and all of Mo Mannings images, and it so happen that I had a brand new Ruby rubbah just waiting to be inked for the first the choice was easier to make than I thought......
*wink & smile*

I stamped my sentiment on the inside of my card, still leaving plenty of room for
some personal writing .  (this card measures 5.5 x 5.5)
                                          ♥ Gotta love Dr. Seuss! ♥

I kept the image as well as the layout ,in a monochromatic tone , using mainly brown and shades of pink

I hope you all  friendly peeps like my interpretation of one of Marilyn original beauty.
I sure had fun creating this Ruby card!
This lil girl immie reminds me a LOT of my youngest grandaughter who LOVESSS to wear any kind of fun and funky  jewellery ,
including my own , everytime she sees me
♥  I'll save this card for her next visit...

♥ Have a blessed Sunday evening my stamping Friends ♥
