I created this card for yesterday’s sketch challenge on Splitcoast. I started out with stamping this darling image from Crafty Secrets Sweet Kids in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It! Blending card and coloring it with Copic Markers (Umbrella: R00, R01, R02, N3, N5, N7 Grass: G20, G21, G24 Flower stems: G24, G28 Dress: Y11, Y13, Y15, W1 Flowers: BV11, BV13 Hair: Y21, Y26, Y28, Skin: E00, E02, Stockings: E0000, E00).

The image was cut and embossed with Classic Square Nestabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker B21. The image was then layered on a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with Scallop Square Nestabilities.

All patterned papers used were from Webster’s Pages Petite Papers. First a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece was stitched to a Neenah Solar White card base. The black with white polka dot paper measures 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and was adhered to the card base.

Next is a 2 7/8″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock strip. On each side a white strip was added that had been cut with (what is becoming my favorite border die) the Faux Crochet Border die.  A sentiment from Sweet Kids was stamped on the bottom of the vertical strip with Tuxed Black Memento Ink.

The small blue paper strip measures 1 1/4″ x 3 5/8″. The bottom border was paper pierced, then a strip of May Arts White Organdy Ribbon was tied around the strip. It was topped with a Pink Paislee brad. Sparkly Silver ribbon was tied around it and curled around the brad.

Recollection Rhinestones swirls in the top left and bottom right corner as well as some Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the card.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
