Some Challenge Fun

Hello All and Happy Thursday!

I can't believe it's almost Friday already, this week is just flying on by! Hope it's been a good one for you.

I've had a bunch of things to do lately and not much time for crafting but I made a point to sneak some time in this morning between loads of laundry and work. I also wanted to join in some challenges, so this card was for that purpose too!

I started with the sketch from Sketch Saturday and paired that with some fun Lemonade papers from BasicGrey. I used a new to me Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp that my good friend and stamping buddy Erin gave me for Christmas. I just love these little mischievous girls! They are so fun! This is Drucilla!

I colored the image with Copics and paper pieced her dress and doll. Then I used an oval Nestabilities set to frame her. It was a little tricky to cut her out, but it worked. I also went a little crazy with some glimmer mist and glittered up with image. I embellished with flowers, a button, sticky gems and pearls, ribbon and some white gel pen doodles.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge: Paper Piecing
Cute Card Thursday: All New (use new stash)
One Stop Craft: Begins with B - (blue and button)

Thanks for dropping by today. I'll see you all tomorrow with new projects for Stamp Something and Just Magnolia! Have a great afternoon. Happy Stamping! :)
