Sassy Design

Ok, This was not on my agenda; but when a friend asks if I'd make a card for her daughter's upcoming birthday! What can you say?
I used the freebie over at Sassy Studio Designs over at Papercraft Planet a few days ago and the current sketch over at Midnight Madness to make this card for her. The sentiment might seem strange - but that's what Mum wanted. That's what Mum gets.
The colour recipe is from Wags 'n' Whiskers, pale Pink, Green and Black and White. Charisma Cardz Challenges have a very similar recipe of Pink, Green and Black.

Using papers from stash, bronzed black, dark pink and a mottled green. The back panel was punched with a MS punch and the top was cut using a LOTV template. The green stripey paper was a freebie in a recent mag.

A little bit of pink lace with a pearlised button up top and some swirls created with pink pearls and white "diamonds"

The image was coloured with promarkers. The background is grey promarker with fine green lines drawn on.

All this was backed onto pale pink CS base.

A couple of challenges I am entering this into

Midnight Madness MMSC99 - their sketch - Although I know it won't win - The DT don't seem to visit those people not in their "special club" that they pick the winners from.
