Karen's Doodles Challenge 8 - Mom/Feminine

The challenge this week over at Karen's Doodles challenge blog is Mom/Feminine.  You should really join in on the fun for a chance to win up to 3 Karen's Doodles images. There are 3 chances to win chosen randomly so everyone has an equal chance. If you don't own any Karen's Doodles, you can pick up a few freebies at her Paper Craft Planet group.

For my card I chose to use this great image called Rosie Loves to Dance. Isn't she just the cutest and so light on her feet!  I sized her to fit my Spellbinders Labels Nine die, then printed her onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Rosie- E70, R20
Nail polish - R05
Dress - R02, R05
Shadow - W1

I used this great new paper from the Claire collection by Sei.  The veins between the flowers on the background paper and some of the stripes are metallic, very cool paper.  I was inspired when making the flowers by Bernadet from Karen's Doodles Netherlands challenge blog.  She makes fabulous floral embellishments.  I used Marvy flower punches and dry embossed them for some dimension.  Finished size is 5.5" square.

Be sure to visit the Challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team has created.  And won't you please join in on the fun?
