Crazy 4 Challenges is going in circles!

This week's Crazy 4 Challenges theme is circles! How fun and easy is that?

I really wanted to ink up the Carmin Medlin for SCACD stamp, First Signs of Fall, so I thought this would be the perfect time. Even though it's called the First Signs of Fall, I decided to make it more of a wintery/holiday card. 

I used the very pretty Memory Box Spiceberry papers and since one of them had little polka dots I paper pieced the coat with that. To help the details stand out more on the paper pieced coat, I went over them with my Copic multi-liner. For her dress I used my fav Creative Inspirations Paint in Autumn Wheat so it would have some shimmer.


I added some of my fun new flowers from Petaloo~ Mixed Rose Leaves and Velvet Poinsettias. My doodles around the image are done with a gold copic glitter pen. To finish the card I just added some gold pearls from my stash.
