One Crazy Stamper - Isabelle with Puppy Coco

Can you believe it's already March? Doesn't it seem just like yesterday we were scrambling to finish up our Christmas cards? The first of the month launches our new Challenge at One Crazy Stamper. This month we have a sketch from the lovely Jacilynn for you to use:
Isn't that a great sketch? Here's my take on it:
You can find this adorable stamp of Isabelle and her puppy here. I cut her and the puppy both out to create this field scene with an embossing folder and my Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities. She was colored with my Copics.
Here's a close up of her:
I made the flowers out of Grunge paper that was stamped and distressed to match the background paper. 

You can see how I made those here.
Here's a close up of the vintage post card I printed and distressed:
The background papers are plain Kraft CS that I stamped with black Memento Ink
I cannot wait to see what you do with this sketch!!

Hugs~

I love everything about this card Dana! The image is just so beautiful. I've got to learn how to lighten up on my coloring. I try for all that wonderful shading but i think I over ink. I love the design of the card. the embossing behind the image is just perfect and I love the rolled flowers too. Did I say I love everything about this card? LOL
