Raggedy Girl - Adorably Yours: Stampart Design by Kathryne

Hi Chilluns! This is a card I made using Stampart Design by Kathryne's digi stamp, Raggedy Girl - Adorably Yours for Whimsy Stamps.  I gave this to Kathryne for her birthday.  She is one of my bestest besties and has been for many years.  I love her images and only wish I had time to use more of them. We are both basically still kids at heart, and our images reflect that.  I adored the Raggedy Ann and Andy story books when I was young.  Her series of Raggedy images bring back fond memories of reading those imaginative stories.  If you want to check out her line (she has lots more than Raggedy dolls - quite a variety actually), go HERE.
I love the Cottage Charms designer paper, also found at Whimsy Stamps. It has a few lined sheets, like the one I used on the inside.  Perfect for writing out a personal greeting.
Other stamps:
Party Hat Sentiments
Vintage Fancy Corners
Fanciful Birthday Notables 1
Two Tone Pale Pink Rose Bouquet (which I coloured with Copics)
Accent Leaves

I put so many embellies on the front of cards, it can make them front-heavy and sometimes they will topple. So I used one of the designer papers for the back of the card too.  It just completes the card so much, plus it balances out the weight of the card so it doesn't tip forward.    It looks more beautiful to decorate the back anyhow.
Here is your close-up.  Copic colours listed below. 
Copics used:
Reds: R12, 14, 17, 20, 21, 27 Shaded with C3, 5, and 7
