Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 15 - Pretty in Pink


The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs blog is Pretty in Pink (ugh, you all know how much I love pink!)  I decided to make a tall tri fold card, I call it a Z fold (it is kind of a backwards Z)  Anyway, I constructed the card first using this great paper from Heidi Grace.  On the front I used Polynesian Sails Oval and matching Angel Wing, adding Anastasia Border along the bottom.


Isn't she a cutie?  She is called Hand Me Downs and is from Saturated Canary Digis. I printed her onto Cryogen card stock.  I tried to pay particular attention to shading and shadows.  Copics used:
Girl - E000, E00, E11, RV02
Eyes - B12
Hair - E21, E25
Dress and Tights - RV02, RV04, YG05, YG07, V15
Shadow - Y00, Y02


For the center panel behind the image, I added Fanciful Flourish, Cheery Blossoms and Anastasia Border.  I added some coloring around the edges of the Cheery Blossoms with my RV04 Copic. 


I found a couple of good sayings about friends and computer generated them then die cut them out using my Silver Oval Stackers.  I used the matching Scalloped Oval Stackers to create the pink panel behind each oval.  Again I added part of the Fanciful Flourish and another Cheery Blossom along with two more Anastasia Border pieces.


Here is what the card looks like standing open, kind of a backwards Z.  I added some pearls to the inside panel and Viva Decor Pearl Pen accents on all the borders as well as the Polynesian Sails frame. 


I love tall cards and in particular this design.  So much space to add papers and embellishments.  Be sure to check out the challenge blog for more inspiration and for a chance to win a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website.

Your card is adorable. Your coloring is fabulous. My first thought that you downloaded an already colored digi, then I saw the colors you used. You sure have mastered Copic Markers.
