I used this week's sketch to make this card for one of my graduating seniors. Freckles is such a sweet image (but aren't all the PI gals?). Her clothing is paperpieced with DP from lilybeedesigns and is called "Handmade." The card base and layers are SU: white and real red. She is stamped in Tuxedo Black onto Neenah solar white. Brad and ribbon accents are also by SU. The mini tab die is used for the verse and  the mini scallop just peeks out. Copics are used to shade the paper pieces as well as color the rest of the image. A list of markers used can be found toward the end of this post.

The main image is popped up so the ribbon tabs tucks under neatly. I just layered and folded short pieces of ribbon, stapled the end and slipped the brad prongs under the staple before inserting behind the layered image.
Markers used for shading the pants and adding background shadow was BG000 (plus 0 for the background). The top was shaded using Y21. Skin is E50, E000, E11 and R20 for blush. Hair is E31, E33 E35. Shoes are R22, 24, 29 with C1 and C3 for the sole. Grass is a base of YG61 with blades of G24 and G94. A red spica glitter pen adds sparkle to her hair clip.
