Tiffany in Blue

Hi Bloggers,

This is my second post today. Hope you've had a good day so far.

I wanted to share this card with you -

The image is called Tiffany and she's from Sugar Nellie. I've had her a while and have been putting off stamping her as there have been so many fab cards using her on The Sugar Bowl that I felt I may not be able to do her justice. Anyway, today I've taken the plunge and I'm pretty happy with the result.

I stamped Tiffany in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with promarkers. She's in blue to follow the Ice and Snow theme on the Sugar Bowl Challenge this week.

I cut Tiffany out using the largest of the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles dies. I cut some poinsettias out using the smallest 3 dies from the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias die set and inked through the dies with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I cut 2 of each size. I assembled the poinsettia and added a blue gem in the middle.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. I didn't have quite the right size nestie for a mat for it so I used a Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias die to create the mat. Although I've made this card as a Birthday card, it could just as easily be a Christmas card instead if a different sentiment is used.

The backing papers are all from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD.

The card was assembled onto a Craftwork Cards 8" x 8" card blank as per Gayle's Sketch at The Sugar Bowl

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges -

Hope you like Tiffany as much as I do.
