Special Thanks

This little lady is headed off to help say Thanks to a special friend AND it's Copic Creation's 1 st Blogaversary! So, I am going to enter this in their Copic Challenge, for Favorite Technique. I would say it is Caucasion Skin and Blonde Hair. They have an amazing library of tutorials there, so be sure to check them out! Wouldn't you like to create a card like this one... Here's the recipe:

The base card is 4 1/4 x 11 and scored in half so it is folded at the top. The Fleur de lis paper at the top is from a Teresa Collins collection, and black card stock at the bottom. The red strip in the center is punched with the new Martha Stewart Iron Gate border punch. Add a black satin ribbon, and top with a small bow. The Tilda image was colored with Copic markers, then the tulips were glazed with a Sakura clear glaze pen, as were her eyes, and a few highlights in her hair. The oval was cut with Nestabilities, and then chalked. The red scalloped oval was also cut with Nestabilities, and both were popped up with dimensionals. I use Zip Dry Glue by Beacon whenever possible. The sentiment "Thanks" was cut from page 11 of my Wild Card Cricut cartridge.

That's about it! I hope you will give it a try. I'll be back tomorrow with a Wedding Card, all done with the Cuttlebug.

Happy crafting ~
