Just a little Note...

Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is going great. I received the new MFT January VIP kit yesterday, and I just had to ink up this Pure Innocence Violin Girl. She is so adorable! 

The PI girl was stamped on the larger doily of the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics, and coloured with Copic markers - Skin (E50, E01, E13), Dress (R81, R83, R85, R89), Violin (E44, E43, E42) & Hair (E18, E99, E21).  I didn't have the right cardstock colour for matting, so I coloured the edges of a white cardstock with Copic marker B97.  I used the same effect with  for the two border strips cut with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics as well. The patterned papers are from Echo Park's Times & Seasons.  The felt flower and leaves are created using MFT's felt Strawberry Ice Cream and Sour Apple with the Rolled Scallop Flower Die-namics and the leaves from Upsy Daisy Die-namics

The card was made following this MFT sketch:

Here's a fun trivia - according to the Chinese calendar, the seventh day of the Chinese New Year is Everyone's birthday!! I don't know much about the history of it, but, here's wishing all of you a Blessed Birthday, and a year filled with much joy and happiness!!

Hugs, Wendy
