Girly Girl

I wanted to share with you today a card I made with no particular thing in mind. I usually make cards with a purpose, with an event, or occasion in mind, but this time around I made it just because. It's using one of the newer Greeting Farm Stamps (Blush Bonnie), which are my all time favorite stamps to color, and the Basic Grey Olivia collection.
I colored the hair and skin using my Copic Markers, and you can see a tutorial video on the hair coloring by clicking HERE. The rest of the image I paper pieced, which I'm hooked on doing now a days.
Used some Nestabilities (my favorite too), some Prima pearls, a rubber embellishment that coordinates with the Olivia collection, a metal rose from my stash to accent her hair, and some beautiful trim I got at Joann's a while back.
I love the fact the trim is soft, and not too dimensional. I thought it went perfect with all the colors of the designer paper. I'm pretty happy how this card came out. After I made it, I knew exactly who the card was for. I'm sending it to a true "girly girl" and I hope she likes it and can appreciate it.

I hope to share with you really soon a mini album I've been working on using this same paper collection (Olivia by Basic Grey). Stay tuned :)

As you can see I love them and I can't thank you enough for your kindness in giving them to me. I am glad to see you are enjoying my blog.
