Card for CraftyCity

Hi everyone so I am gonna try and catch up on my blog posts now that Ava has officially started Kindergarten (Wah). I made a card using products sent to me by Archana the owner of craftycity.com an awesome online craft store with flowers, trim, TGF stamps, memory box dies, prima & more. I already posted a YT video of this but please check out the store as well as Archanas YT channel which is Whatamemories.

My card is large its 8 1/2x 5 1/2 on a PTI "Lavender Moon" cardstock base
I used TGF "Blush Beatrice" image and copic colored it (copic colors will be listed at bottom of the post.) All the patterned papers for the card & the paper piecing on the image are from Fancy Pants "Hopscotch". I used MFT Dienamics "Oval Open Scallop Doily Duo" die out of the patt paper for behind my image. I stamped my sentiment from SSS "Banner Sayings" in Delicata "Golden Glitz" ink cut it into a banner then inked the edges with Hero Arts Shadow Ink "Grape Juice". I then layered 2 different laces from CraftyCity onto the bottom of the card.

I layered a cameo onto a metal piece (both from Craftycity) with some cabachons from my stash on the bottom center.

I made both sides symmetrical with the flowers. All of the flowers & leaves are from CraftyCity. The sprays & hearts are from my stash.

For the inside I again layered the Fancy Pants paper. Then took white cardstock inked the edges with Hero Arts "Grape Juice" shadow ink & stamped my sentiment with the same ink. The sentiment is from SSS "Tilted Banner Sayings" & SSS "Beautiful Words".

For my image:

Colors for TGF Blush Beatrice:
Skin- E000,00,21/R20,30  Hair- V05,06,17,09
Everything else was paper pieced with the Fancy Pants papers then shaded with C3,1,00. Also used stickles on her bow and glossy accents on her buttons & shoes.

I hope you like it XOXO
