Happy Weekend Everyone!!!  Oh, I sure hope you're having a great one!  My husband and son are spending the day together today.  That leaves me in my craft room!  Yippie!!!  I really like the sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week and wanted to make something for it.  I had this little girl colored in already and had picked out the dp's.  I got sidetracked and never actually made a card for her.  So, this was the perfect opportunity.  I grabbed my laptop and made my way to my craft room this morning.  I just love the card that I came up with.  I hope you do too.

This little Sugar Nellie is called "Untamed".  Isn't she sweet?  I just love her long, flowing hair.  She almost looks to me like she's floating.  The dp's are from the Got Moxxie - Baby Mine collection.  But, the pieces that I used don't look 'baby-ish' to me.  The cs is by both SU and Bazzill and is really hard to see in photos.  But, believe it or not, there are two layers of cs backing the dp's.

I used a MS punch for the border around the image.  It adds a bit of romance.  I added the ribbon and bow both for texture and to cover the imperfection where the border didn't finish perfectly.  I put a little metal flower in the center of the bow for more texture and a bit of sparkle.  The gorgeous black gardenia is by Magnolia and you can get them and more at Magnolia-licious.  The pink flowers are by Prima.  I got the feathers from somewhere on eBay and I just LOVE the feeling they bring to the card.

As usual, I colored the image with both Copic markers and watercolors with distress ink.  Here's the detail of the colors that were used:

Copics: C00, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, E00, 02, RV21

Ranger Distress Ink: Shabby Shutters, Spun Sugar, Old Paper, Pumice Stone, Black Soot

I hope you enjoyed my creation today.  Thank you soooooo much for joining me.  Try to find some time to color!
