Good morning folks.

A scheduled post today of a card I made at the weekend.
I have bought a lot of Saturated Canary stamps recently. I really enjoy colouring them and practicing getting the shading of the hair right. 
I began by making a shaped card using ivory centura pearl and Go-Kreate's XXL square frame frilly #2. I cut a smaller frilly #2 from red core'dinations which I embossed with a Tattered Lace embosing folder called Spring. I then added this to the card base. 
I cut a Spellbinder's Grand decorative circle from a heart paper from my stash, attached it to the base and then added some ivory lace from the Ribbon Girl along the bottom of the card.
As I said earlier the image is Pricilla from Saturated Canary which I coloured with the following Spectrum Noir pens and pencils -
  • Skin - FS1,TN1, TN2, TN4 and 089
  • Hair - GB1, Gb7, Gb9 and 087
  • Eyes - tB3
  • Lips - TN4
  • Clothes - CR8, Cr9, CR11, TB1, CR4, CR5, CR6, EB1, EB2, 028 and 093
  • Ground - BG1 and BG3
  • Sky -TB1
I cut the image out with a Spellbinder's labels 11, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and matted it onto a Spellbinder's decorative labels 8. I attached the topper to the card base with foam pads.
I cut a Memory Box Heart Flourish and added it to the top of the card, and then cut a LaLa Land heart banner, shadowed it with red core'dinations and attached it to the bottom of the card.
I added some red flowers and a heart charm (from the Ribbon Girl) to the side of the image.
I stamped a sentiment from LOTV's sentiments to fit scrolls, cut the sentiment out with a Die'namics mini tabs die and added it to the opposite side of the image.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
