Pondering Emma…

Whatcha’ thinkin’ ’bout Emma?!  I think she’s sad because there isn’t anyone around to pull her in the wagon.  Wait!!!  I made it a birthday card….she’s contemplating how old she is!  There that’s it! ♥  She’s sure a cutie!  Part of the Take A Seat kit from CC Designs.

Emma is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I stamped her first and then masked her with eclipse tape then stamped the wagon with the stamp a ma jig… I have a tutorial on this in the sidebar if you’re interested.

Spellbinders nestabilities squares and the new Magnolia Doohickey lace… love that lace die! I cut it out of felt and edged it with a little Vintage Photo Distress ink kinda pounced on with the Tim Holtz Ink Blending tool.

Graphic 45 pattern paper, Bazzill card-stock, SU tag and scallop circle punches,  EK Success circle punches,  Spellbinders cherry die,  Martha Stewart Butterfly punch.  The card is 6×6 in. square.  I edged the papers with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.

I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 154.   Sweet Stampin’ Challenge Blog’s theme right now is Distressed Birthdays.

I took too many pictures of this card trying to decide what direction was the best… obviously I couldn’t decide so you are subjected to all these photos today! hahahahahaha…sorry!  Guess that’s why I normally just take front shots!  whew… Maybe tomorrow I’ll do better!!!!  maybe….and maybe not!  I never know! lol  Bye for now!  OH,  I’ll leave you with one more photo! lol  ♥♥♥
