Look On The Bright Side!

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday

I have a card to share with you today using the fabulous March Guest Designer Sketch!!  You can get all the details on how to play along HERE on our SCS Forum!  The prize is MAJOR...play along with the MFT DT for the April Release!  AH-mazing!

I LOVE a sketch with a circle, and for my card today, I've used the darling WTG Puddle Jumper!  I mostly paper pieced, but I did stamp the image onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored her legs, the ground and the puddle with Copic Markers.

All of the patterned papers are Remarkable from My Minds Eye, and I used three different patterns both on my card and on WTG...I paper pieced her rain coat, skirt and boots.  I added glossy accents to the puddle for lots of shine.

I used the AWESOME Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics for the banner, and the border was cut with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-Namics.  The sentiment, "Look on the Bright Side..." was stamped in Black Licorice MFT Ink onto a panel cut with the File Tab Die-Namics.  I used the Cloud Trio Die-Namics, and Whip Cream MFT Felt, to cut the clouds.  I thought they added a cute accent.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment in Black Licorice Ink, and added another cloud to tie the design into the front of the card.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:
