Isn’t this image darling? I used Stella from The Greeting Farm for Jimmi’s Hope You Can Cling To Challenge. She gave us this sketch to  use.

I new I wanted to use Stella and new dies and build my card around that.  I started by stamping the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers ( Skin: E0000, E00, E01, BV00   Hair: YR24, E39, E29   Dress: G0000, G00, C2   Heart and shoes: RV00, RV10, RV13).

A piece of MME Lost & Found Two Blush Paper was cut and embossed on Classic Circle Nestabilities dies. It was stitched to black cardstock piece that had been cut and embossed with the next size circle die. A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest of the Tear Drop Circle Dies. Pink Baby Bling Rhinestones were added between each tear drop. Stella was cut out and adhered to the center of the circles with dimensionals.

A 4 3/4″ square of Blush paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock. A 4 1/8″ mint green square of Blush cardstock was cut in half diagonally. It was stitched to a slightly bigger white cardstock triangle. A black cardstock was cut and embossed with the Lace Doily Accents Border die. The strip was adhered under the triangle layers before those were adhered to the lower left of the card front.

Before the image was adhered to the layers with dimensionals, pink silk ribbon was run through one of the tear drops and tied around the layers. The bow was topped with a button that was tied on with embroidery floss. A black Rhinestone Flourish was cut apart and adhered to the lower left and upper right of the layers.

The card base was cut and embossed with one of the Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die out of Whitewash Core’dination cardstock. A sentiment from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Simple Pleasures was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a white cardstock piece, cut and embossed with Classic Circle dies. It was layered on a slightly bigger black cardstock circle, adhered to the lower right of the main image. Pink Baby Bling was added underneath.

The inside of the card was kept pretty simple. Extra pieces of Blush paper were adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of white cardstock before they were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock. Another part of the black Rhinestone swirl was adhered to the lower right of the layers.

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