Hello there! My niece turned 13 today and I whipped up this card for her. I've been wanting to use The Greeting Farm's Abbey ever since I got her and I think this was the perfect time! I used The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Spy Day #4 Challenge for my card. I'm also entering this card in All That Scraps Weekly Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes, Ribbon Carousel's Anything Goes Challenge and The Spotted Chic's That's Krafty Thursday #55.
I was a bit worried about colouring Abbey since I hadn't used my copics in a while but I'm quite happy with how she turned out. I used a bit of gold Perfect Pearls mixed with some water to spray on the little Tim Holtz Wish ticket for a bit of shimmer and some Crystal stickles on her eyes (to match my niece's sparkly eyes). I also used some Glossy Accents on the bow and the belt buckle.
