Amazing Day

Welcome!  Today's card was made for the sketch and color challenges at MFT Stamps, as well as the Patterned Paper theme at Simon Says Stamp and the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday.

I mirrored the sketch so the girl was looking into the card rather than out of it, but other than that, I pretty much stuck to the sketch.  I tried to color match Copics to the challenge colors and I'm not sure I got Blu Raspberry right, but it's as close as I could get it.  The background was covered with patterned papers from  the Thick & Thin and Watercolor Wash packs that I cut using a die from Blueprints 29.  I white embossed the sentiment and die-cut it, again using Blueprints 29 so it has stitched detail at either end to match the frame.

The little girl is popped up on foam tape and I didn't add any embellishments to the card.

Thanks for visiting.
