Mon Cherie- Stampendous Blog Hop

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday!  Today is my last post as a guest designer for 7 Kids College Fund for the month of March, sniff, sniff :(  I have had so much fun, it has truly been an honor to be part of this team.  Today I am so excited to be part of a super fun Blog Hope for 7 Kids featuring products from Stampendous.  Here is my card:


I am SO in love with Saturated Canary images and love that Tab is carrying them in the store.  This one is called Summer and you can find her HERE.  These images are so incredibly fun to color, especially the hair :)  I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic XPress It Cardstock.  I then colored her with copics.  You can find all your copic needs HERE.  Here are the colors I used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: R81, R83, R85, BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18
Grass: G21, G24, G28
Shadow around image: W2, W4, blender
The swirls in the corners of the image were stamped with a Versamark pad and applied directly to the paper.  I then used Stampendous Detail Silver Embossing Powder to emboss the swirls.  I love this effect.  Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from My Mind's Eye.  The pretty elements in the corners were made using the Filigree Corner Die from La La Land Crafts.  Finally, the sentiment is from the adorable French Flower Cart Clear Stamp Set by Stampendous.  I just love this set and I can't wait to use more images from it. 

Here are a couple more photo views of my card:
