Bubblegum Girl and 2 challenges yeah!!!

Hi Blogger's,

After yesterday's emotional post's back to normal for me today!!!
Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog has another great challenge this week using any of Cheryl's 'girl' images. There are PLENTY to choose from but I really liked this one!! ooh I can remember doing this.

Mad for Markers has a great challenge too, if you haven't found this one start with the link on the right hand side. You'll recognise Sammi, for sure. The challenge here was to use Copic Markers in the following colours: E00, R20 and BG15. I've used these plus a couple of others in the E family.

Base card is Bazzill Basics Petunia....a bit like bubblegum don't you think? The DP is from the Kaisercraft Gypsy Sister's Collection paper pad.

After sizing and colouring this image I decided to cut her out! Lots of Swiss dots embossing on this card, including the top layer of the delish pink flower. I finished the flower off with a silver spacer (a RAC from Bev in the UK) and a blossom gem which like the flower and the two blossom sprinkles on the top right are from Annabelle Stamps Pink Petals Collection.
Some sparkly ribbon complete this little card.

After I'd finished colouring this image I read a post from Cheryl saying that by popular demand she had drawn the follow up image to this one!!! You have to go check it's great.

Hope you're managing to get some craft time this week end, thanks for dropping by I'll see you tomorrow................

We have done it again...used the same image in a challenge. We must certainly have similar likes and taste. The bad thing is, your projects are so much prettier than mine! As I said in my post, I was going to do pastels and somehow I went off plan. Love your much more "girly" than the flower, dots, and DP.
