Something Girly

Here's a card that I made over the weekend, specifically to fit in with the sketch over on the Saturday sketch challenge. I had big plans for some card making over the weekend but, with one thing and another, this was the only one that I managed to get finished, so I have a nice pack of half finished cards to play around with if I can keep my eyes open over the next couple of evenings!

So - back to today's card. The stamped image is from the Crafter's Companion Popcorn's Pals range. I don't know if this range is particularly well known but I think that this little rag doll is so cute, and she's really fun to colour  too. All of the papers have also come from the matching CD from the range. A handy little tip - rather than ruining a whole sheet of backing paper for my punched borders, I printed a sheet of borders , cut a couple of strips off, and the punched on to the edges of those. Easy! Plus it saves on precious printer ink too.

I have coloured the imafe using my Spectrums - I am really starting to enjoy these pens and they have some really lovely colours - I will definitely try to collect the whole range over time.

So - on to the challenges. I'm going to enter this card for the following.......

Sketch Saturday.
ABC - Anything goes
CES challenge - Totally Gorgeous / Pretty Girls

I'm looking out of the window now, and the wind is blowing and the sky is grey. Looks like our bonus summertime could now be over, so I guess my Christmas mojo will soon be returning!

Thanks for looking.
