A bit of news and a card too...

Happy Monday!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was pretty low-keyed which was perfect after a very stressful work week!

Before I talk about my card today, I wanted to share some exciting news....one of my cards is in the Jan/Feb issue of Through the Craftroom Door! I was just thrilled when I got the email back from Marti and Suzanne saying that they wanted to use my card in this issue! I am so excited!!! You can get a copy of the Magazine in print and/or a PDF version and here is where you can buy it along with information about the exclusive website for the subscribers.

Now on to my card...

This card is inspired by the Paper Pretties weekly challenge. This week is a sketch challenge and you can check out the details for the challenge here.
This image is called Falling for you Sophia. I wanted to make a Valentine's themed card and the image actually has leaves in it so I covered the leaves with little hearts that I punched out with my Friskar's handheld heart punch. After gluing down the hearts I covered them with Cotton Candy Stickles for a bit of sparkle and dimension.
Sophia is colored with copics - E25, E31, E50 - hair/E34, E33, W3 - rake/R81, R83, R85 - overalls/B000, B41 - shirt & pocket/Booo, B41, E34 - shoes.
I sponged Summer Sky ink for the sky and Bamboo Leaves for the Grass area.
I cute Sophia and the sentiment out using Spellbinder's Labels 10 and matted both on a Petitte Scalloped Oval.
All of the paper is SU except for the white which is Copic X-press It.
I finished off the card with a bow and pearls.


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your day!
