Midnight Madness DT- MMSC106 & GDT Oldie but goodie - Lotsa Layers

This card won Cream of the Crop at Crop Stop!!!

This week I was able to combine my card for two DT challenges! Lucky me. This week at Midnight Madness, we have this amazing sketch to work with.


Enter one style or both this week.

Just have fun and come play with us :)

Also, this is my last week as Guest Designer for Oldie But A Goodie, where the theme is Lotsa Layers. I was able to use the same card for both challenges, just love when that happens!!
For my card, I used this adorable Sarah Kay image, Isabelle with Puppy Coco, and paired it up with Prima Botanicals paper. I love this paper collection, the muted vintage feel of the papers is just beautiful. I also used Lili of the Valley Dreamy Days stamp set for the sentiment, "Wishing you a Day full of Happiness", which I cut out with my scalloped circle Nesties.
I colored the cutie with copics:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R32
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Shirt - G82, G40, YG63
Pants and Hat- E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, RV95, RV93, RV91, G24, G20, W5
Puppy - E35, E33, E31, E50, RV95, RV93
Ground - W00, W1, W3, W5, G20, G24, YG63, G40, YG03
Here is the artsy view of my card. I used lots of Wild Orchid Flowers on this card. I used a white Gardenia which I sprayed with Creme de Cocoa Glimmer mist, two 25mm white roses, which I sprayed with Lilly Pad Glimmer mist, a two-toned purple cherry blossom, and some 15mm purple roses. I used a Magnolia Doohickey Die to cut the swirl and Martha Stewart Frond punch to punch out the leaves. I used my cream Viva Decor Pearl pen to add some pearls on the corners of the panels.
The inside of the card is finished off with more of the gorgeous design paper and a simple cream silk ribbon and bow. There is lots of room for a personal message to be added.
I loved making this card, and I thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will come out and join us at Midnight Madness for our sketch challenge, We have some amazing sponsors this week. Our MMSC106 Weekly Bonus Sponsor is...
