1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown

I saw one of my DT teamies - Ida - had entered the 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown and she has made a fab card for it. As you know, I'm a huge fan of sketches so I thought I'd give it a try too.

Image: Little Miss Attitude from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers (highlighted with white Inkssentials pen and sakura clear stardust)

I used a plain white square Anita's card blank and removed about 1cm from one edge of the front of the card. The lilac patterned paper is from the Daisy & Dandelion A5 paper pad, and the top scallop edge was made with the Fiskars threading water border punch. Over the top of this I attached a piece of purple core'dinations card which I had run through the cuttlebug with the paisley embossing folder. 

The image was matted onto lilac core'dinations card and plain white card, I inked the edges of the card with a purple chalk ink pad. I then attached the image piece so that the bottom edge was over hanging the bottom edge of the card by about 1cm.

This picture shows it better...

wow this is a fantastic card and just seen your challenge blog will have to have a go at that although I cannot shade with promarkers.
Thank you so much for the lovely words that you left on my blog. I have some strong painkillers and antiinflamitries so managing to do some crafting. i have found if i paint on good days I can then cut the papers on the bad.
Big hugs and thanks for being a great friend x
