Alicia The Strawberry Pirate

Hi all... I couldn't help myself.  I have another entry for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Krafty Guest Contest over on Facebook.


For this birthday card I used Alicia The Strawberry Pirate from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I colored her using Spectrum Noir pens, 

I started with a 5 x 5 black card base. I added a piece of hot pink card stock backed in orange paper. I added two pieces of orange pin dot card stock that I backed in black card stock.  I layered a piece of white ribbon onto a slightly larger piece of black ribbon and added it to the bottom piece of orange pin dot card stock.  

I backed the image in hot pink card stock and cut around it using scallop scissors and then backed it again in black.  I added 3 pink paper flowers to the ribbon and added a black pearl to the center of each.  I also added 3 more black pearls to the upper corner of the card. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the bottom corner.

I finished off the inside of the card by layering a piece of white card stock backed in hot pink card stock onto a piece of orange pin dot card stock onto hot pink card stock.
