Pink Cat Studio ~ Apr 15th Digi Release!

Aloha! How fun is this week's luau theme? So fun! I love the movement in Lily's grass skirt as she sways her hips to the music. Just look at her svelte figure and those legs! LOL I made this card for a specific friend whose birthday is in May. She reads my blog regularly so I'm sure she'll guess that this is for her since she vacations in Hawaii every year. ;)

After seeing this card, I knew I had to make one the same shape. I've done several cards with one or two rounded corners but never thought to make it three! I just love that one point, don't you? It sort of draws your eye in the same direction Lily's hair is flowing. This was the first time I outlined an image with a blue Copic marker as opposed to my typical grey. It worked really well with the colours on this card. The blue border behind the sentiment is lined with flowers stamped with the flowers from Lily Valentine Ballerina. I just love them! It's great to incorporate existing PCS stamp sets with new images.

How much more fun can it get? See for yourself!

This week we say goodbye to another design team member, Tracey Cuccia, but it's also the first digi release with our four new design team members so please be sure to check out their links on my sidebar. Have an awesome day!

Adorable, Emily! I love the color combination... especially the blue outline all around Lily. The three rounded corners definitely add movement and flow to Lily's hair. Cute!!
