Get Your Girly On

Today's share is two firsts for me this week. First time I created a card for a challenge using my new Copic markers, so excited to final own a set.  My second first this week, is my first card creation as a Design Team member over at Southern Girls Challenge, challenge #43 "Get Your Girly On".  Please head on over to the blog and check out all the DT inspiration, play along with us and don't forget to link up your creation.  make sure to use all your fun girly papers, bling, and ribbon.

We have several sponsors this week, so I choose a digi image from Dts Arts, Puppy Love - Lara & Pup.

She is so adorable, and so is the little pup peeking out of her backpack.  I had a lot of fun coloring this image to coordinate with my papers.

I used the following markers: 

Face, Arms - E00, E02
Hair - E21, E33, E35
Dress, Backpack, stockings, shoes -
BV00, BV02, BV04, G00, G02, C-1, C-3

For the base of the card I used 6" x 6" light teal cardstock, layered two pieces of coordinating pattern paper, cut at 5-1/2" sq. and 5-1/4" sq.  A third piece of coordinating pattern paper for the bottom edge was cut at 2" x 6", with white lace trim at the bottom and lilac ribbon tied around the card at the top of this piece. 

I stamped the sentiment, from Studio G in black ink on to a 1-1/2" circle and layered it on top of a 2" lilac circle. I used my Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge, pg. 65 <Flower3> white, <Flwer3-s>  lilac using the oblong feature cut at 5".

To finish:  Cut out the digi image, layer all remaining pieces to the card.  I then added teal adhesive rhinestones around the oval cut out and at the bottom of the sentiment circle.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Catch the Frenzy!
