My card today features the darling Sweet Little Donkey from Meljen’s Design. I love that image. I already had it as a digital image, but I love it so much, I had to get it as a rubber stamp as well. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (donkey: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9    Nose/ear: R01, E93, E95, E07    Grass: G40, G43, G46    Background: BG0000, BG000).

The image was first layered on a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die, then on white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of Pink Paislee Nantucket Patterned paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded, stitched and May Arts ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip. The paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die.

The image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensional adhesive. Fancy That! Border Bling was added to the upper left hand side of the card, Silver Rhinestones to the lower right corner. A sentiment  from Good Life Tickets was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a tag die from Home Sweet Home . The embossed part was colored with Copic Marker BG0000. It was tied to the bow with a button and embroidery thread to finish off the card.
