Pretty Chloe - Challenge at AGOAC


It's time for this week's challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge, and the theme this week is "Add a Bow."  This challenge will run from 8:00 AM Feb.23 to 6:00 PM March 1, and the prize for the winner will be 2 individual digi images (NOT SETS) from Pink Gem Designs.  So do head on over and see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have created, then join us, won't you?  We'd love to see you!

My card today uses two very cute stamps, "Chloe with Daffodils" found here and the adorable new "Wall" digi stamp, found here.  Put together, they make a cute scene. 

I colored the images with Copics, and I airbrushed the sky, using cloud die cuts as masks and accented them with a very light gray.

Everything else is pretty self-explanatory.  Aren't the two little snails so cute?  Especially the one peeking around the corner of the wall.

Some stitching, pearls and seam binding complete my little card.  Thank you for taking the time to join me, and I wish you a lovely Saturday full of crafting goodness.  Make sure you include a stop over at our challenge so you, too, can play along!

Happy crafting!
