My item is a standard size card.  I used our embossing folders and decided I liked the unraised side better for this card.  I actually used the Whisper Alcohol marker on the face (but I really didn't want to make her look like one of the undead or anything--just add a hint of color so she didn't look so white).  Anyway, it really didn't add as much color as I thought it would.  ;-)

Close up of some of the detail:
Papers: Jubilee WOTG kit; Cranberry, and White Daisy Cardstock
Stamps: S1404 Balloon Talk; S1403 Happy Place (March SOTM)
Ink: Black, Indian Corn Blue  Exclusive Inks; Water based chocolate marker (ret.)
Embellishments:  z1853 Aqua Dots; z1893 Base & Bling Red Jewels; Liquid Glass
Other:  Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, oval and oval scallop spellbinder dies

Time to hop on over to Mary Eisen's Blog to see her beautiful eye candy! Be sure to visit all the Consultants' blogs to get some great crafting and fun ideas! Remember, the SOTM is only available thru April 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for $5!

Happy hopping!
