Jules

 
Today's card is a bit of a celebration really.  Our granddaughter finally got a pet - she's been wanting one forever so she now has a cat named Veronica.  Don't ask me where she got that name from but it just cracks me up every time I say it.  She loves that cat dearly and is over the moon to have her so I thought I would make her a 'Welcome Veronica' card.  This is Saturated Canary's Jules and I just love this little gal and that dress... didn't we all want a pretty dress and bow when we were little?  I did.

Anyway, I used my Quickutz circle and scalloped circle dies to make this easel card; the flowers are made with the Sizzix Bigz 3D Flowers die and the leaves are a Poppy Stamps die called Lorelai Outline Leaf.  The sentiment is Stamper's Anonymous Good Thoughts collection.

I stamped around all the edges with a little flourish die inked with Tim Holtz's Bundled Sage distress ink, added the pearl dots with a Viva Pearl pen and then some Stardust Stickles on her crinoline and bow.
Some of the Copic colours I used are:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair:  YR20, YR24, E35, E37
Dress:  YG00, YG01, YG03, G24
Challenges:
Saturated Canary - Good vs Evil (I chose good)
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
One Crazy Stamper - Anything Goes
QKR Stampede - 3 of something (roses)
