Victoria Case for SCACD Release Day is HERE!

TODAY is THE day!!! It's the release for the second installment of the Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts & Hugs Collection! They are available now so check it out!! This image is called Game Players. Victoria's critters are always adorable!

For today's card I used this week's sketch challenge over on Taylored Expressions (TESC78). A perfect match for the size and orientation of this image. Plus I love the little extra layer in the corner because I KNEW I had to have some kind of "game" embellishment on this and that was just the spot. I have a really cool looking poker chip or two SOMEWHERE but I couldn't find them when I was making this. I did find these mini playing cards though, and I think they worked out even better!

I started off by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. The paper colors are So Saffron, Real Red and Basic Black. Put on some ribbon and of course the pièce de résistance; the cards. I didn't put a ton of embellishments on here because I think that the image really stands well on its own - it doesn't need much to dress it up! I did add glitter to the butterfly's wings - everything's better with glitter. :)

Be sure to visit all of the DT blogs to see what they have created for today's big release!! Then head over to the Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store and pick up your favorites from this new batch of cuteness!
