Embrace Life

Happy Saturday my friends.  I hope you are all having a great day.  If you are card making today, please scroll down to my post about the Perfect Sentiments Blog Hop this weekend.  Lots of chances to win prizes. 

I do have a new card today.  I made this one for The Outlawz Creative Freebie Challenge. I also used an old Deconstructed Sketch #24 for the layout.

Isn't she gorgeous!  I had so much fun coloring her and putting this card together. 

Materials Used:
Image - drawn by Anne Fenton of The Outlawz printed out on XPress It Blending Cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and cut using Nestabilities Classic Oval Die cuts.  I used SU Rose Romance to distress the edge of the image oval.
Sentiment - SU Embrace Life stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink on SU Whisper White cardstock and matted on a layer of SU Wisteria Wonder cut using a Verve Die - Charming Banners.
Card base is SU Pretty In Pink
Designer Paper - SU Flirtatious.  I love this paper.  It will be gone soon so I many have to order another package of it.  I used Cricut Elegant Edges to cut the layer the image is matted on.
The 4 strips are cut from SU Wisteria Wonder using a retired SU edge punch.
Flowers - Martha Stewart paper flower stickers.
I used some Stickles on the lower part of her dress, the band, and the flower on her dress.  Her earrings and bracelets are colored using Spica Gel Pen Sand.
Copics:  0 (blender).  I used this all over the dress before I colored it with the Pink colors.  Skin:  E50, E51, E53, and R01 for her cheeks; Dress and shoes: R81, R83, R85; Hair: Y11, Y13, Y15; Outlined image with W00.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment.  If you have a few minutes, scroll down and check out the Blog Hop challenge below.
