SophistiCat Challenge Card

Saw this lovely sketch over on the SophistiCat Challenge blog and thought, I have to do that and maybe it will help my Mojo return! I can't find it anywhere! Even going through my new papers didn't spark it off. In fact it made it worse, as I didn't want to cut into them and then make really rubbish cards! But, having said that, I did find some papers by PaperMania called Exquisite tucked away. Actually they'd fallen down the back of my shelving and would have been there forever if I hadn't dropped a load of brads all over the floor! Getting down on my hands and knees, with Frog the Cat helping to pick them up, I shone a torch into the darkness and there, still in its bag was the 6x6 packet of papers. Beats finding hairy spiders!!
I used my new Nestabilities 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large', my various sized Woodware punches for the flowers, and my new Martha Stewart punch for the leaves, using the same paper, plus some textured card from 'mat stack BRIGHTS' to give them a bit more body . The little image I got sometime ago from a forum swap. I decoupaged the image, as that was part of the challenge too and also paper pieced her clothing, then coloured the rest of her with ProMakers and Copic pens and added Stickles Glitter. The 'curly' diecut detail inside and out, was done using a Cuttlebug die-cut and my BigShot. This has gone off to a forum buddy, very very late!! I hope she likes it. I must admit, I'm quite pleased with the out come!
