Back in February I made this card. I liked it so much, I had to case myself. For this sample I used Meljen’s adorable FREE digital image Sweet Little Donkey.

It was printed on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut with the largest Circle Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Light Donkey Colors: W1, W3, W5, Dark donkey Colors: W5, W7, W9, Nose: E93, E95, E97, E99, Earls and hearts: E95, E97, E99, grass: YG41, YG45).

Another piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Circle Nestabilities die and airbrushed with Copic Marker W9. The image circle was airbrushed with Copic Marker BG11 before it was adhered to the beaded circle. The edges of the image circle were paper pierced.  Two buttons (one S.E.I., one October Afternoon) were stitched to the left hand side of the image circle.

The card base is a piece of Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with one of the Label 4 Grand Nestabilities die and scored it in half. Two pieces of Fine and Dandy- True Blue paper was cut with the next size smaller Label 4 Grand die. The strip was adhered to the larger piece before ribbon (unknown origin) was adhered over strip. The layers were stitched to the card front and the image layers were adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

A bow was tied with the help of the Bow-Easy out of May Arts Organdy Ribbon and topped with a Cosmo Cricket Button.  The button was tied on to the bow with the sentiment. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Handmade letter Seals. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a tag cut and embossed out of Neenah cardstock. The tag was airbrushed with Copic Marker BG11.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
