                     Here's the card I created using the "Puppy Girl" image from Bugaboo Stamps:

Before I get started on the steps and materials I used to create this card, I just wanted to say that I am glad to be blogging and crafting again. It has been a hectic couple of weeks and unfortunately I had to take an impromptu break from all things craft related.
I hope to fill you all in on what's been happening on my end soon.
With that said, let's get back to the card.

The card measures 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" and uses a sheet of black card stock for the base. 
I layered a sheet of grey card stock that I trimmed down to 3 1/4" x 6 1/4".
Then, I stamped a pattern on the card stock using a few small stamps from Prima.
I used my tape runner to attach it to the card base.

Next I worked on the image using my alcohol markers to color her in.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used:

-Skin-  E00, E11, R20
-Hair- E97, E99, E29
-Clothes, Shoes & Boots- C01, C03, RV63, RV55, C06, C08, B14, B18
-Puppy- C02, C04
-Background- B00, B12, C02, C04

I added a few details with my white gel pen to the bows, shirt, pants, and sidewalk.
Next I stamped the Eiffel Tower in the background using a rubber stamp.
I used both rubber and clear stamps for the birds and swirls.
I drew in a wavy line frame, and, to finish off the image, trimmed the image down to 1 3/4" x 5 3/4" and backed it on a piece of white card stock cut a 1/4" bigger.
Then, I layered the image panel on a sheet of stamped and embossed pink card stock.
Finally, I adhered it to the card base using foam tape.
As a finishing touch, I added a few silver sequins and the sentiment, "The Best Moments."

And voila!! Card complete!

                                                  I hope you enjoyed this card for today!
                              Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!! :)
