Meljen's Designs 'Girls Just Wanna' Have Fun' Challenge

Happy almost-Friday, everyone!
I am waiting, very patiently, for the local sushi place to open up for dinner! It is gorgeous outside, and hubby and I are heading to our favorite sushi place to get us out of the house. In the meantime, though, I had some time to put together a card for Meljens Designs newest challenge, 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun'.
I had entered their challenge celebrating their 200th challenge, and I had won! Woohoo! Of course, silly me.....I didn't check the current challenge theme before sending off my image pics for my win. If I had, I may have chosen something a bit more girly for this challenge card. *sigh* Ahhh, well......I had these Sweet Lips, which I had actually picked up as a freebie "way back when". They are now in the Meljen's store here

I did a lot of white-on-white for this, as you can see. I colored up the lips in PSE, added a sentiment, and printed. I layered the main image onto a white sheet with some pop dots, for interest. I cut out the 'xoxoxo' banner with a Silhouette cutting file, and the scalloped hearts are a Spellbinders die from the On the Edge set. A thin strip of a deep red card stock from my scrap for the bottom was added to anchor the card.

That's it! Easy-peasy, right?! I know..... but it was quick and fun! I hope you like it!
Thanks for dropping by! I'm off to tear hubby from his video game so we can hit the sushi bar! Have a great almost-weekend!
Happy Crafting!
