Letter Gorjuss - Sugar Nellie

Another "Red Letter Day" for me. My Magnolia-licious images arrived in the mail! I can't wait to get a card made with these sweet gals. But for today, I made this Sugar Nellie Gorjuss gal with a letter. I chose to use these designer papers from Basic Grey paper pad called Perhaps. I used SU Bravo Burgandy as a mat behind all my panels, and alas, didn't have quite the right colors for the dress. Well, you do the best you can. It takes me so much time to get the image colored due to my 11 month old interruptions! But I finally got the card pulled together. The button and linen thread are SU.

I have so much to learn about using these wonderful Copic markers. I don't have the lightest colors to do skin with so I have to make do. Her face is a little dark, but I'm happy with the results. This will be one of my graduation cards I send out. I have to put the sentiment on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look...
