Too Cool Stylish Girl Card...Time for a New MayzyArt Challenge!

A wonderful day to y'all beautiful Crafters...What's keeping you busy, nowadays?  Well, for me, there no shortage of things to do.  I am determined to finish my King-size crochet blanket and been working on that every chance I get.  But it looks like it will take months before I come near it's end...LOL  On the other hand, I just got done making this DT Card for our third MayzyArt Challenge.  The theme is "Black" which is Mayzy's favorite color and she gave us the freedom to interpret this theme the way we see fit. So, here is my card featuring the lovely "Junko" which you can find at MayzyArt Etsy Shop.  I colored her with my Promarker and Prismacolor markers (Oh, it was so much fun to color her!).  I used Kraft CS as my base card and gathered 3 varieties of mostly black DP's.  I also used a black and white CS to compliment my DP's.  I used my Nesties to die-cut the black, lacy scallop and used my small MS Circle Cutter to create the circle DP on top of it.  I stamped and heat-embossed the flower (from Ditto stamps) many times and paper-pieced them to a single flower for added dimension.  I also stamped and heat-embossed the house border (from Heidi Grace stamps) at the background for a cool effect.  The sentiment is from Printworks and the arrow from Stampendous.  I incorporated some black ribbon and stitched all over this card.  If you have seen most of my cards, I seldom make cards that are primarily black...I love colors and can't stay away with them completely.  So, as long two thirds of my project is black, I am cool with that!...LOL  Anyway, what do you think?  Hop on over at MayzyArt Blog to enter your own, unique project in our Challenge. This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Little Miss Muffet featuring "Loads of Layers"
2.    Bunny Zoe Crafts featuring "Girls, Girls, Girls"
3.    Paper Shelter featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.    Creatalicious featuring "Anything Goes" 
5.    Stampin with the Dragon featuring "Anything Goes"

    1. Thanks, Heather for the awesome comment. I think Kraft is versatile and I can literally mix it with anything. If I want to cut my prep time for making cards, I always reach for Kraft because it's easier for me to work with it. God bless!
