Well, this project took a totally different turn than expected.  It started out as a card and ended up wrapping a big chocolate bar that I got for free.  Trying to stock up for Christmas now, so the bank is not broke later.  Guess this one won't make it to Christmas  I stamped the cute little Tiddy Inks, Stylish Friends image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  She is colored with copics    After I colored her, I masked the image and  used a Stampabilities Tapestry Pattern stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen to add a fancy background to the image.  The image was then cut out with MFT Round Banner Dies.  The paper is by Cosmo Cricket and I have added some ribbon, and Wild Orchid flowers to adorn the image.

Here is a peak at that chocolate bar on the inside. I used a Lacy Circle Spellbinder die and stamped the sentiment, Sweet November Stamps, A Little Bit of Magic.

Here is a little closer look at the image.  I was so intimidated by this one before I started to color, but I am pleased with the turnout.  I like the challenge of a fun image!

Copics used:
Hat/Dress:  BV0000, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E35
Hair:  E34, E35, E37, E49

So here is the remainder of the hop!
