I love how many wonderful gifted crafty items I was able to use in creating this card. I colored up one of The Greeting Farm Hatters with the following Copic colors: Skin: E000, 00, 21 with R30; Light blue/aqua: BG11 and 13 (with white dots made with a white Gelly Roll Pen); Medium blue: B21, 24, 95 and BG45; Dark blue: B63, 66, 69; Hair: B60, BV31 and B21. Then I fussy cut it out and inked the edges with a black marker to hide the white edge of the paper.

20160516_101606I used a cartoony peacock feather patterned card base from my friend Carol (YT: Crafty Carolina Gal). I added champagne Stickles to the centers of the graphic feathers to add a little extra interest and sparkle. Then for the lacy “ground” for the little girl to stand on, I used a beautiful double sided lace from my friend, Mataya (YT: minnescrapper). The lace had a center space for running ribbon so I wove a sheer teal ribbon that I had received from my friend, Emily (YT: Emily Cox) to coordinate with the blues of the little girl’s outfit. The flat back pearl stickers that I placed at every loop junction were from my own Dollar Tree stash. 🙂

For the cluster of flowers, I used a vintage doily from my friend, Beth (YT: bethesscrapbookroom), topped with blue mulberry paper flowers I had received from my friend, Yurlady (YT: Yorlis07) and tiny pale blue tulips from my friend, Tina (YT: Crafty Bean).  Being made with crafty yummies so many wonderful friends, it is no wonder that I feel like this card exudes crafty love! I feel so blessed to have been able to create with all these gorgeous things and to be part of this warm and wonderful crafty community.
