I am SO excited to share my card with you today!  I've used the ADORABLE new Moka Sir Henry, illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Moka Collection at Taylored Expressions!  I just ADORE him and he was so much fun to color!  I am in LOVE with the entire Moka Collection, and I bet lots of you are too!  If you are a fan and have one or more, you have to check out the Petite Storage Cases...they are AWESOME!  

For my card, I started with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC153, and all of the patterned paper is Dilly Dally from My Minds Eye.  I stamped Moka Sir Henry in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, colored him with Copic Markers and then fussy cut him out.  He is popped up with Foam Tape onto a circle panel cut with Circle Nestabilities and then impressed with the Chicken Wire/Woodgrain Taylored Impression Plate.  I added a Circle Bling for some shine.

I stamped the sentiment, "You're My Knight In Shining Armor" directly onto the teal panel, and the border was cut with the new Majestic Border Taylored Die.  I added a bit of twine and two more bits of bling and called it done!

Here is a closeup of the border...LOVE it!

Here are the Taylored Dies and Taylored Impression Plate I've used on my card:

I am having some trouble lately getting good pics of my cards (any camera suggestions out there?) so I am not sure you can really see my coloring.  I always refer to the AMAZING Copic Hair Color/Skin Color Chart which is available as a FREE download HERE.
