For Someone Special

Hello Friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had some beautiful weather here this past weekend, in the high 80's. I must say that I am loving the weather. It is a huge difference from the weather I would be experiencing if I was back home up North. Today I am sharing a card that I made over the weekend for a special friend who will be celebrating her birthday very soon. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #234 for my card. This week's sketch could be either round or square so I went with the square card and made my card base at 5x5.

For my main focal point, I used the sitting Jane digital stamp by Make It Crafty

and colored her in using copics E000, E00, E02, E27, E29, E33, G12, W5, W7, BG45, BG49 and B000.

I wanted to make her stand out a bit so I used some glossy accents on her bows in her hair, her eyes and on her shoes. I also used some pearls for her bows in her hair and on her shoes. She is popped up on a spellbinders beaded ovals die cut which I used some broken china distress ink to stamp the pretty beaded ovals stamp on the inside of the oval and also used some of the ink to distress the outside of the oval. I layered the sentiment square and popped that up using dimensionals as well. The sentiment is from the Hot off the Press stamp set Birthday Greetings. I used some black and white ribbon that I had in my stash to make the bow and used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom border. I used Bazzil cardstock for my card base and all the other papers used were from the Journey Collection by Authentique. Well thats it for my card today, thank you for stopping by!!!
