Classy Cards Striped Sofia

Hi, I'm here today with a card inspired by Classy Cards 'n Such's Colors and Patterns challenge.   When I saw the inspiration photo it reminded me of this adorable Stampavie Sofia Wishes stamp.

I stamped Sofia once on white card stock and then a second time onto a piece of green patterned paper from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper pack.  This has become one of my go-to paper pads, I love the slightly muted colors and print patterns.

I colored her with alcohol ink markers and then cut out her dress and glued it over her body.  I was planning on paper piecing her apron too but the bow was tricky to cut so I ended up coloring in the apron with a yellow-orange marker.

I cut Sofia out with a Spellbinders Elegant Oval die and popped the oval up with Joy Crafts Foam Adhesive.  The green striped paper is also from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper. To add a little interest I wrapped the card with twine from my stash and added adhesive Mother of Pearl Rhinestones.

Thanks for visiting and make sure you join in this week's challenge for a chance to win a great prize!
