Junie B. Jones

Tuesday Throwdown asks us to create a project inspired by a favorite book. I am a voracious reader of lots of subjects--the mystery thriller is my favorite genre. However I can't think of any particular favorite and didn't think that would make an attractive project. I recently visited grandkids and they had me read the Junie B. Jones books to them. I fell in love with her. She is a primary schooler with an attitude. Just a really fun character but can easily get herself in predicaments. So I have this little girl stamp set that reminds me of Junie, I think it is from Penny Black.
I used a white card base. The stripes DP, sentiment, and tag tie are from SU. There are 2 strips of sparkly ribbon on the left. The figure is stamped on a Nesties Label 4 die and colored with colored pencils and star gel pens. I gave her a smear of red lipstick--Junie gets in trouble playing in her mother's makeup. I tilted the label a bit to look like she is about to fall with that large stack of presents--also to follow this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
Just a fun birthday card for a little girl.
Since it is "anything goes" at Simon Says I will link it up there also.
