Little Emma

I've  had this image coloured for some time and finally made a birthday card. The colour scheme and papers make me think of  "Back to School".

Autumn Emma  (C.C. Designs)  is sitting on the bench, perhaps waiting for a birthday surprise?  Both the bench and Emma were stamped on Bella White card stock, coloured with copic markers, and then fussy cut.  Her shirt was pieced with a snippet of patterned paper from  PTI Library Ledger Collection. Additional patterns from the same paper pack were used for the main front panel and two of the Nestabilities layers. The solid card stock (Bahama Blue) was used for contrast for one of the final layers.The sentiment (Fillable Frames #1) was stamped with Chocolate ink. The card base is Rustric White card stock.

Here's a close up of the various layers.
The strip of paper under the mats was created by stamping the 
numbers from Mini Scrapbooking Series: Tabs using Chocolate ink. 
The brown ink was also used to sponge the edges of several of the layers.  A 
brown button was tied with Rustic Twine and added to the card. The grass
 from Garden Variety was stamped below the bench using Pool Party ink.
