Today’s challenge for Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge is a sketch. All the Kraftin’ Kimmie Gang is showcasing a new set called Candy Girls. I started by stamping Coco Choloate in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with the largest Classic Rectangle LG Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers ( Hair: Y11, Y21, E31   Skin: E0000, E000, E01   Eye: B00, B02   Pink: RV00, RV10, R81, R83, R85   Chocolate: E35, E37, E59, E49   Ground: W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7). The edges of the image sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink and the outer edge dusted in glitter. The layer was adhered to a piece of Neenah Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest of the Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities.

Echo Park Graceful This & That patterned paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded before it was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock.  A  paper doily was adhered to the upper left corner and Aqua May Arts Ribbon was tied around the square. The image layer was adhered over the layer with dimensionals. All layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

A sentiment from the set was stamped in Tuxedo Black on white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Fancy Framed Tag One die. the edges of the layers were sponged with Antique Linen before it was adhered over the lower right of the image. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl and two rhinestones from the Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.
