Anki's Sweethearts - Catherine with Butterfly


TGIF, huh?? Today I wanted to share a card I made last week for the Viva la Verve February challenge over in the Verve Splitcoast Forum. I had just gotten this FABULOUS image from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and I was DYING to get it inky. The image is from a new, exclusive line called "Anki's Sweethearts" and can only be purchased from SCACD. They were designed by Anki Bargman - I think they are just the sweetest!! This one is called Catherine with Butterfly. Who can resist an image that has "with butterfly" in the name??

I used this VLVFeb02 sketch with a twist for this project. The twist was to NOT use patterned paper {which is a shame because I had some all picked out!!}. Here is the sketch:


So, as you can see, no patterned paper. I did run the Groovy Guava and both the Ridinghood Red panels through my Cuttlebug though, to give it a little something for definition. The Guava cardstock DOES match the pinkish-coral color I used on her dress, even though it doesn't look like it in the photo. :) I colored her with my Copics, added the double-layer of ribbon and some self-adhesive pearls per the sketch. The horizontal layer is on dimensionals and so is Catherine.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great day and a good kickoff for the weekend! Don't forget to enter my blog candy, HERE, I will draw the THREE winners after midnight on Sunday. See you tomorrow! I might even have another giveaway then, so check back and see. ;)
