This card is for my swap. This card was time intensive to make (25) of them, But a ton of FUN to do! Lots of Steps! But each part was so fun! I loved watercoloring the woman and punching all of the punches. Assembly was fun too. I used mini glue dots to attach the ribbon on either side so that one strip of the Not Quite Navy from prep school could do all 25 cards (just enough)! The best was using Basic Brown to stamp her and then doing so on Blush Blossom so that her face hands and legs did not need 'coloring', This Card uses one of the new In Color color combinations from the new Chart! Buckaroo Blue, Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, and Not Quite Navy. I threw in Blush Blossom, Whisper White, and Sahara Sand and they act as neutrals.

I love this card, I think it is the nicest one I have seen with this set. It's all the little things that make this card fantastic, I love the way you did the ribbon through the slot punch, but my favorite part is how you did the tag, the bottom layer under your main image. Into my favorites it goes.

Tag treatment - fantastic! Yes, I can see this would take some time, but really worth it!
