My niece Taylor, the little girls call her TT, is turning 15 this week. This card is for her. I followed the sketch at A and T Emerald Faeries. The image is called Danielle with Laptop by Mo Manning. Colored with Prismacolor pencils. The patterned paper was a Silhouette fill pattern, which I have never tried doing before but it was so beautiful and I loved the colors so I filled a square with the patterned 'paper' and then used the internal offset feature to add a 1/4" smaller square inside. I changed the solid line to a dashed one and then changed the line color to navy. I printed both the patterned square and my faux stitching out on the printer. Amazing. Custom patterned paper. The flowers and leaves were also Silhouette files that I cut out of patterned paper, used a Bo Bunny brad for their centers and lifted off the page with pop dots. I used a pink grosgrain ribbon with silver sparkle polka dots on it (didn't photograph very well) and 1/4" loopy blue ribbon. Of course I colored her up to look like Taylor and her tabby (although I think her cat has a bit more gray, but I think I'm close)!
