Welcome!!  I'm so happy you came to visit today. I am designer of the day on the Card A Day Blog where our theme of the week is "TEEN."  My card was such fun to make, but a challenge as well because I was not only making a card for an age group I'm not that familiar with any more, but I was also making this card for one of our challenges at the Crafter's Digital Art Club, Easy As 1-2-3.  In addition to a digital image, the challenge required the use of one sentiment, two design papers and three embellishments.  Here is your first look:

I first chose the two dps to give me a color basis.  These two pieces, as well as the cut ovals, were from my scraps.  I must confess, however, that my card base and the mat were both cut new.  I just didn't have the right colors in the scrap stack.

Once I had the papers chosen I selected the embellishments.  Then I went about finding the right colors from my collection of Copics to color my image.  I just love this image.  She is called "Uptown Cutie" and she comes from Jen Leeflang at DigiStamps4Joy.

I colored the image, and then used a die to cut it out.  I also die cut a fancy frame for her.  I added a bit of glam to her outfit with a glitter pen, and used sparkly brads for some extra glitz.

The brads were used to attach my little sentiment tag as well as sparkle up my cutie's bow.  The last addition was the flower which I attached using a pearly brad as the center.

I used foam tape to affix the two oval layers so that my card would have lots of dimension, but still remain flat enough to fit easily into an envelope.

Here are some of the details:
          Papers:  Recollections (black and lilac)
          Flower:  Petaloo and The Paper Studio
          Brads and Sentiment Tag:  My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found" collection
          Glitter Pen:  Sakura Gelly Roll "Clear Star"
          Copics:  V20, V25, RV11, RV13, R00, BG01, Y00, E000, E31
          Dies:  Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Ovals and Floral Ovals

See you again soon!!!
