Tula's Hearts Framed, Dilly Beans

     I have a really fun card to share with all you crafty peeps today!  I have been working with a lot of holiday images lately and it felt really great to do something different.
    This is my diamond fold card I made for my team project for Creative Fingers Challenge Blog.   The new challenge begins today and the team was given the theme of Banners for this one, it is of course Anything Goes for you guys.  Our Sponsor is Dilly Beans and I am working with an image called Tula's Hearts Framed, you can find it HERE.

My papers are from Heidi Swapp, the banners are fussy cut from the paper collection.  I think it is Sugar Chic.  I have had it for a while and I kind of horde it.  I only use it when it fits just perfect for the project because it was intended originally for a mini book for my daughter. haha Well, I don't think there is enough left for that now.

The charm and the ribbon are from American Crafts.  The sentiment is a digi from Create with TLC.  I colored it with my Graph'it markers and added Glossy Accents to the round part.

585- Tula's Heart's Framed by Dilly Beans
I colored the image using my Graph'it markers and I will list my color combos below.  I added Stickles to the hearts and a bit in her eyes and then Glossy Accents over the top of that after it dried.  That kind of thing never photos well and I think I lost a bit of my dimension in my coloring after it.  Maybe I should have left the shading more dramatic if I was going to glitter it? hmmm.
Graph'it color combos used:
skin: 4125, 4115, 4170, 3120/ 4145, 4135
hair: 5110, 5120, 5130, 5140
blue: 7220, 7240, 7250, 7260
yellow: 1140, 1150, 1230, 1280
pink shading: blender, 5110, 5120
