Pink Dandylion

Wow, who turned the page to a new month - it's June already, it seems like I just put the Christmas decorations away!  Hard to believe but it's time for the new monthly challenge theme at One Crazy Stamper, and this time it's a SKETCH designed by one of our own, Cindy!!  Here's the sketch.....

and this is my card featuring Kraftin' Kimmie Dandy Lion.

The image was stamped on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento ink, colored with Copics, highlighted with Stickles Cotton Candy, and matted with grey cardstock.  The edge of the mat was covered with Glitter Ritz Micro Fine Cool Highlight, then the entire image was popped up on dp from Glitz Pretty in Pink paper pack.  I fussy cut the sentiment from an identical sheet of the dp and popped it up for added dimension.  For the flower I cut the Italian Flourish Doily from Cheery Lynn Dies, sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and while it was still damp scrunched it.  The center of the flower is a piece of seam binding inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, and also scrunched, and highlighted with the Cool Highlight glitter.  Leaves for the flower were cut with a Martha Stewart punch, the corners are from the Whimsy Stamps Shapeology Dies Corner set, and edges were inked with Victorian Velvet.
