Little French Lady

     This darling image is from Julia Spiri and I think she makes a perfect birthday card for a young lady.


I chose colors from Color Crazy.


     She's colored completely with chalks and framed with a stitched die cut from Die-Namics.  That frame is actually a negative, trimmed to fit and layered on top of the image.  The sentiment is printed with a computer font, then cut and added.  I used a white gel pen to highlight the stitches made by the die.

     I embossed the card front and used pastel pink chalk to highlight the embossing.  However, it doesn't show up all that well in the photo but if you enlarge it, you'll get a better view.  No embellishments beyond the chalk and embossing because I wanted a really CAS design.

     That all for today.  Thanks so much for visiting.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
