Wags 'n Whiskers - Pop it up for dimension!

YAY! Happy Friday!!!!! I do so live for the weekends when I don't have to go to work! WOOHOO! Playtime! And wow, is it ever going to be a gorgeous weekend! Up around 70 and sunny both days! Who's ready to come to Reno??!!! :) Since it's Friday, it's time for a new challenge from Wags 'n Whiskers!! This weeks challenge is from the fabulously talented Chris! And she picked a perfect challenge for me....Pop it up - Add dimension to your creation. And oh do I love dimension. I can't make a card without popping something up. LOL! Thanks Chris!

I chose to use this absolutely adorable image called Happy Day. Isn't she fabulous? I colored her with Copics and cut her out. She's mounted on dimensional tape onto the frame I cut with my Cricut Expression. The frame is also popped up from the card. You know...since I started using my Gypsy, I can't remember which cartridges I use anymore! I guess it's cause you don't have to go through the turmoil of digging out the cartridge and putting it into the machine. I love it!! LOL! But now I always forget! Sorry!

I used Basic Grey June Bug paper that I got from Stamp and Create, along with the ribbon and charms too! Cardstock is Bazzill and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Please be sure and visit Wags 'n Whiskers challenge blog to see the amazing creations of the rest of the Diva's. And then grab your paper and glue, and your Wags 'n Whiskers images, and play along. Be sure and use your WnW image though if you want a chance to win a free stamp! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

Hey Girly, I hope you are having a great weekend, You just don't miss a beat when it comes to making a beautiful card! This is fabulous. Your coloring is just amazing Sharon. Tell me, do you apply your light or dark colors first? What kind of card stock do you use. I need to know all of your copic secrets to getting such beautifully colored images.
