Southern Girls Challenge #17

Hello lovely people!! It's time again for another challenge over at Southern Girls and this week we want to see you use Blue and Green. Here's what I've come up with....

This little beauty is Simply Sassy's 'Winking Student' found here and this card was also used for my SS DT inspiration post today. These awesome papers are from Basic Grey's Oliver collection and I just had to throw in that little bit of burgandy cause I thought it just made everything pop!

As you can see all of the papers are distressed...even the rolly roses, lol, but that's about it for techniques! Although it still took me forever this card came along quite nicely and I finally go to do this little thing where the image is partly outside the diecut. I have a cricut, so it's hard to reason myself into buying a bunch of spellbinders templates, but on a recent trip to JoAnn's I found 2-four die collection sets for $39 and I couldn't hardly pass that up now could I. :)

Ok, back to the card...

Here's a closer view of the little darling. Sorry it's not such a great pic, apparently I just couldn't get the camera straight yesterday. I also regreat to inform you I forgot to take a pic of my copics, sorry about that. I can tell you tought that if you like the darkend portions on her face and body my darkest color was YR02 I really find I like the look of it much better than E11 that everyone else seems to use.

I even did up the inside this time around! This is a pocket with a tag and  there's going to be a sentiment by the flourish, I just haven't decided what yet.

I guess that does it! Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you ceck out what the rest of the SG Dt has come up with for your and our fabby sponsors Digital Delights for NZ/AU and Meljens for Int.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I love that border & how you have combined the texture there with that of the doily. The colouring of the books & her shoes is brilliant & I just love the whole originalinity of this.The burgundy is a terrific addition & as you say really makes the green & the blue "pop".I love the inside too & especially that tasselled border & your deep blue ribbon which matches her open eye beautfiully. Your placing of the rolled flowers is great for she looks as if she is winking at them & I do like how she comes outside the image panel.
