Sugar Nelllie & All Dressed Up Blog Hop

- Hello Sugar Fans and All Dress up Fans -
Well hello and good morning to you all it's Blog Hop Day!!!
Our joint hop is to celebrate All Dressed Up's (ADU) recent birthday and to launch their stamps being available in both rubber and digital from Sugar Nellie.
We're having a BIG blog hop today combining both the Design Teams from Sugar Nellie and ADU's Dressy Girls.
So here's my card ---- or should I say 'book' for the hop. It's a book because I loved all the images so much I couldn't decide on just one, so I coloured all 4 of them. LOL 
Here's What I Did
I taped together 2 5" x 5" card blanks together to make a book so that it folded inwards - placing a strip of ribbon between the cards so that it can be tied together when closed. After printing all the images onto my colouring cardstock I coloured each of them with Copic Markers. I used the same colourway throughout all of the pictures, to finish off I added dots around the images. I then die cut 2 frames and 2 mounts in both blue and pink CS and layered them up. Using the left over squares from the frames I adhered some doubled sided paper to them and die cut my flowers, snowflakes and leaves. I peeled off the backing paper and added some crystal glitter - these were added to my frames as embellishments. I attached  3 of the panels to the inside of the card base and one on the back.  The front has a typed greeting in the same colour way as the rest of the book.

Here's What I Used
Stamp: New 'All Dressed Up' stamps available from Sugar Nellie at Funkykits
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Craftwork Super Smooth Digital CS, Topsy Turvy CS, Double Sided Adhesive Paper
Copics: Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R30 / Pink Shades - / Blue shades -  / Blonde/Red Hair - YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13, E99 / Black Hair - C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, 000

Dies: Tonic Square Layering Dies, MFT Die-namic 'Flower Trio & Leaves Trio', MFT Die-namics 'Snowflakes', Tattered Lace 'Embellishments'
Other: Glitter, Ribbon
