Off To College

Last year as my daughter and her friends went off to their first year at college I decided to send them cards every few months just so they got mail (and so I had something to do with all the cards I made :).  This year as they head off to their second year, I plan on doing the same thing.  They are all rather different and so I get to create lots of different styles.  I am going to use the images I colored here to make the first round

Here is the first one I finished for The Pink One herself, Miss Katie-bird

I used this week's Saturday Sketch #221 as the layout.  It was just perfect for the card that was forming in my mind and  added a few details I hadn't pictured yet. I LOVE how this one turned out!!!

I used the striped image from  BB:Retrro (PTI) to create the plaid.  I only stamped up to the point where the other layers started for times sake, but you can't tell with the bitty bit of overlap.  The next pattern is BB:Houndstooth also from PTI.  I stamped that in True Black (PTI) on Melon Mambo card stock (SU!) and sponged the edges in black to offset it a little.  The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages (PTI) and the 2 little embellies next to the sentiment are hot pink staples.
The girl is Poppy, one of my new digis from TI.

Here is the Copic map:
Flowers: R24, R27, R29
Leaf/stem: YG23, YG25, YG95
Clothes: T1, T4, T6
Hair: RV10, RV13, RV14
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R81

Interesting how I made this for Katie before I saw her all pinked out for the Susan G Komen 3 day Walk For The Cure .... her hair looked pretty close to this for the fund raiser  ;)

Thanks for stopping!!
