Caardvarks challenge: Clean and Simple

The Caardvarks are having their second challenge for the month of September. This challenge is sponsored by Hero Arts and the theme is clean and simple cards.

When I started to think of what I wanted my card to look like, I immediately thought of this embossing folder by Quickutz. It is so simple to emboss the card stock and then add whatever pretty image you want to emphasize to the center. I chose this image from the Dolls clear stamp set and decided to make her look Christmassy.
I colored her in with Copic markers and then added a little bit of green glitter to the flowers on her tummy. The photos are kind of bad, but I think you get the idea.

I cut out the sentiment using the Chemistry font by Quickutz and my Cuttlebug machine. It is a very clean and simple font.

I know the paper looks gray, but it is all done in white. It's impossible to see in this photo, but I even gave her pink cheeks. I love how I can blend with the Copic markers. :-)
Thanks for looking everyone. Have a great day.
