A Krista Smith card using WOW Embossing Powders

Well, I finally got the photos taken and edited of all the cards I made over the past couple of weeks so after this holiday weekend, I'll be posting them (hopefully every day or two) until they are all here.

This first one is an adorable image drawn by my favorite, Krista Smith, and colored with Copics. I just love her big glasses! They make her look so studious, don't they?

I kept the design simple as I wanted this little cutie to be the center of attention. I used WOW Embossing Powders for the greeting (Primary Ebony) and the edge of the image die cut (Metallic Gold Rich Pale Regular). I used Diamond Glaze on the lenses of the glasses to give them the semblance of glass.

I love this net ribbon in pale turquoise. I can't remember where I got it but I have used in on several projects that I'll be posting over the next week or so. I warn you though, I have been on a Krista Smith kick lately! I just love coloring her little Ragamuffins.  

If you aren't familiar with her work, you must check out her shop called Saturated Canary. She also has a challenge blog as well as a personal blog and she's very sweet to deal with.

And here's the inside of the card. In case you're having trouble reading it, the sentiment says "Life is nothing without friendship". Isn't that the truth? That's all I'm showing you today but check back on Tuesday for another new card. I'm also planning a giveaway for next month about which I'll be posting details next week as well.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Oozak - #2 Spring Colors
The Outlawz Copic/Promarkers Challenge - Anything Goes
