|Tons of love and joyful wishes for my youngest gal!|
I started with some white Simon Says Stamp card stock and cut it in half and folded in sideways for a side folded A2 card. I then used some pink card stock I received in a Simon Says Stamp monthly kit a long time ago and stamped that with the Wild Rose Studio Bella on Bauble stamp using my MISTI stamping tool. I knew that I might need to stamp it twice so I wanted to ensure I got a good image both times. I used Memento tuxedo black ink as I knew that I was going to color this in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Next, I colored the image in (I'm so sorry I forgot to write down the markers exactly) using grays, reds, pinks, and a bit of light blue. I added some clear wink of stella to the fur on the hat as well as the ornament. I also added some Silver Moondust Tonic Nuvo drops to the stars on the ornament and some Morning Dew clear Tonic Nuvo drops to the shine spots to bring those out. I used my Sakura Metallic Gelly Roll pen in black sparkle to line the ornament string and the sweet elephants eyes. It turned out so cute!

To put the card together I cut some paper from the My Minds Eye Sugar Plum patterned paper pack in order to create a layered effect. I cut them all smaller than the card base and at varying sizes. I glued the first piece down at an angle then added the next piece on with foam tape. I also added foam tape to the back of the pink paper I used to stamp my image and then took the Dewdrop Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Sky Blue, as I really love the metallic blue effect it gives and felt it matched the paper well, and ran it over the edges of the paper. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Celebration Scripty Sayings stamp set with the same blue ink onto a white piece of card stock left over and mounted that with foam tape to the top of the card. Finished!

|Since I forgot to specifically line up the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers that I used, |
I thought I would show you my collection!
|And more, my beautiful makers - I love these Spectrum Noir alcohol markers!!!|
I just love how this turned out and I think my youngest will love it. Only one more "special" card to do - well, actually all of the cards I'm making for everyone this year are special because the people receiving them are special!!!!
Hope you're having a wonderful week. Jude :-)
