Here for You

Hi and welcome.  I made this card on the weekend and only now getting a minute to blog it!  Story of my life lately!  Anyways, I made this using the colors from Color Throwdown, but that challenge has ended :(  I also used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, the Anything Goes theme featuring Newton's Nook at Simon Says Stamp, and the CAS theme at Addicted to Stamps and More.

I stamped this adorable image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copics in the CTD colors.  After die-cutting it with the co-ordinating die, I set it aside and got to work on my card base.  To bring in the horizontal element, I die-cut an oval from the card base and adhered some patterned paper to resemble sun's rays behind the cut-out.  I stamped the sentiment then adhered the image using foam tape.  To finish the card, I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid
Cardstock:  White, Whatever the Weather (SPD)
