So below is the Inspiration that sweet 9 year old Madelynn gave us to make a creation with!!!  I took it literally and used all the colors in the plate, Pumpkin Pie, Pixie Pink, Perfect Plum Old Olive, and Brocade Blue, and Whisper White in SU! Card Stocks I also like the swirls on the plate so you can see below the colors I made my swirls on the inspiration piece.

Here is my Creation!!!!!

I used my Scallop Circle Nestie and cut it out 3 times for the Pink, Green, and White layers and I traced it on The Puple, Blue, and Green layers then cut it out.  I used my SU! CB folder and ebossed the swirls on the white with that then I took Ink pads in these colors and distressed the swirls too!!!!

I had to use this image because Marie at The Greeting Farm made this Madelynn stamp after Jess's Daughter Madelynn and she is the one that issued us this inspiration and so this is a Madelynn card for Madelynn!!!!

I colored her in these copics:
Coat:V00, V12, V04, V17, G24, G85, G94
Shoes: C3, C5, C7, B100
Scarf: Y00, Y61, Y65, Y68
Socks: B02
Hat: B21, B24, B26, B02
Flower: RV00, RV02, RV06
Hair: E33, E35, E29
Skin: R00, E00, E95, RV21

Here is a side view I popped some of the Scalloped circle layers and not others.  Madelynn is popped up twice and the Butterfly is punched MS and then cut down to size with scisors.

Well off to bed lots to do tomorrow we got about 4 inces today but it does not look like we are canceling school tomorrow which is a bummer to me I wish I did not have to drive Willow across town and back again!!!

Have a Very Stampendous Wednesday!!!
