Jenny Gropp - you are here!

 I used the cute little Gopher Set for my card today. Along with the cute little gopher, there are lots of sentiments than can be used for different occasions. 


 I started by stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black. I For the dirt I used the Copic Fur Technique with Blender Solution and dabbing with a rag to remove a little color and add some texture. 

 I finished coloring the image with the markers shown above.

 I added just a touch of BV0000 to the gems but you can't really see it in the pictures. For some sparkle on the gems, I used my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen.

 Lots of layers on the front and the inside! All made easily with my Perfect Layers Rulers! To see a tutorial on how I framed the image with the stripes going different directions, click HERE.

I added a little piercing on the inside along with a strip of the left over striped paper (Simple Stories). The card is 4 3/4" Square and opens at the bottom tent style.
