Today's card features an image from Conie Fong called Abbie with Cake and it's my first DT card for the month of August. Isn't she adorable? She just had to be done in shades of pink because she's so perfectly sweet and girly.
I colored her with ProMarkers and cut the image with a die from Spellbinders. The 4 corner pieces were originally 2 die cuts (also Spellbinders) which I cut in half and added to the corners of the image.
The background is a (very) old piece of scrapbooking paper. I'm sure it's been in my stash at least a dozen years! I know it was one of the first papers I ever bought for scrapbooking and that was before I really got into card making. I started blogging about a year after I shifted over to card making and that was in February of 2011 so that would be 11+ years and it was in the scrapbooking stash for a couple of years before that.
The satin ribbon and hand-tied, double loop, bow are Really Reasonable Ribbon and have also been in the stash for a long time. Sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die, then I inked the edges with marker before applying it to the card.
