McMahon Five Designs new releases for the week are out- I was enamored by this sweet digi called Amelie by Solocosmo.  I had fun using some Washi Paper and my Copic Markers:
  I love the sweet face on this little girl. I colored her with Copic Markers. I Paper Pieced her Kimono using Washi Paper. I also used a Technique Junkies 'Dabbed Shimmers' in yellow to coordinate with the color in the Washi paper. 
  The ribbon is dyed Seam Binding. I added a Zig-Zag stitch to the border of the card.

Challenges:
Paperplay- Monochromaic and ribbon
Creative Card Crew- Ribbon
Ribbon Carousel- Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash- Starts with a B- Bow, Border die (cut up and used for corners)

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly your card is gorgeous. It was one thing to have done the same card as you but I was going to paper piece the Kimono too but then change my mind. Can you run the paper you used on the kimono through a inkjet printer? And I want to thank you for the sweet compliment you left on my blog.
Hugs, Fran
