Shabby Chic Tomboy Boquet...

It's been a month, or nearly, since I've made a card and I felt like a fish out of water trying to figure out where to start first.  But, just like riding a bicycle, I peddled my way around the room and re-introduced myself to all the stuff around me.  It was a fabulous reunion and I'm happy to be back. 
I'd like to share this little lady, Lil Pinkette Pippa, as she starts off another challenge at The Squirrel & The Fox for the theme of One For The Girls
Background paper on the right is from Echo Park and the bg on the left is a free download from Free Pretty Things For You. The center is joined with bits of a doily. Machine stitching and distressing with TH Tumbled Glass finished off the background.  Wooden letters are painted with white and blue acrylic and topped with a layer of UTEE as well as Butterscotch Liquid Pearls and an attempt at faux stitching with marker (not so successful.)  The addition of a yellow and twine bow with Prima flower and the tag stamped from Stampin' Up! Friendly Phrases as embellishments.  Pippa is colored in Copics.
If you find yourself with some free time and have a card that fits 'For The Girls' we sure would love to see it at The Squirrel & The Fox for our challenge.   The sponsor for this challenge is Tickled Pink Stamps and they are offering the winner a choice of 1 rubber stamp or 2 digital stamps in a set.

I sure am glad you stopped in to take a look and I hope this finds you happy and well.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...

Hello Q
I cannot imagine you being like a 'fish out of water', with your imagination you would be able to create anything.....
I think Pippa is adorable, and the colour work amazing, you place the light/dark shading exactly where they are supposed to be.
This is a great card.
Smiles:)

Your copics talents never cease to amaze me! This image is AWESOME!!!! Each of the papers and embellishments help create the 'sweet' style of this card that goes perfectly with Pippa!
