Tonight I have a thank you card for Margaret.  She took a trip to NY and visited The Ink Pad.  Sweet thing that she is, I am the fortunate recipient of a lovely stamp and a beautiful Cheery Lynn die.  I couldn't manage to use both on the same card, so here's the stamp and I will showcase the die later.

It is 101 degrees and it is 7:45pm.  What a good excuse to be crafting!!!
(No, I don't live in a desert).

I used the sketch from The Craft's Meow, though I turned one of the flowers 90 degrees.   The DP is Basic Grey Gypsy and the cs is DCWV.  This beautiful girl is from Printworks.  I enjoyed pulling out a ton of Copics with which to color her.  The bottom die is from Cheery Lynn and the ribbon is from my stash.  I used Memory Box dies for the flowers using coordinating BG paper, adding Swarovski crystals to the centers as well as to accent the sentiment from Papertrey, which is stamped with Palette Orangerie onto a Sizzix die banner.

I am entering this in the following additional challenges:
Papertake Weekly - All things Girly
CMC Copic Challenge - anything goes with a girly twist

Thanks for stopping by!
