I made this card for my youngest granddaughter, Savannah, who turns 3 today. I used Surprise Ridley digi images from Digital Delights. This card is designed from the sketch at Delightful Sketches Challenge. Be sure to check out the inside of this card. There are more Ridley images.

I also entered this card into the following challenges.

Digital Tuesday Challenge - Bling - I have.

Creative Inspirations - Bling - I have all kinds of bling.

Paperplay Challenge - Dimension - Definitely lots of dimension .

Stamp Something Challenge - Paper piece something - I paper pieced parts of the image.

Daring Cardmakers - Bejeweled Bliss - This card has glitter, jewels, and even the dp is sparkly.

The background DP is bright and glittery. We all know how little girls love glitter and bling. The image was colored using copics, then popped up, and the head popped again. I used a black glaze pen on his nose and whiskers and a clear glaze pen on his tongue. The white hightlights were made using a white gel pen. Isn't he just adorable ??(hehe) Of course, there had to be stickles added on the present for that extra bling. The blue strips were dry embossed with the Cuttlebug. The MS punch for the vertical strip added just the right touch enabling me to use rhinestones. I know, I know(hehe) - you noticed the stickles on the ribbon. It just needed that extra little bling.

The image was colored twice and popped up and then Ridley's head was popped up again. It was cut out with my nestabilities and sponged around the edges.

The inside of the card was made using the Ridley corner and Ridley tag. All of these are available at Digital Delights.

The pocket was made with MS punch. Of course, had to add rhinestones. Can't have an inside for a little girl without bling.

This is the backside of the tag. You can get all of these images and more of Ridley at Digital Delights.

I am so glad you stopped by to view my card.

Please, if you have time, leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Even if it is just a few words.

Thanks Again and God Bless
