Sketch and Stash Challenge - 11 April 2011

Over at the Sketch and Stash Challenge they have a sketch that I have used to plan out this card.  I deliberated on which way to have the sketch but decided to go with how it is originally.  I have used various scraps of brightly coloured papers from my stash (these papers I must have had for about 3 years but I am determined to keep on using up papers like I did for the whole of last year) and then a spotty DCWV paper which I have distressed the edges with and also highlighted some of the spots with Stickles/Distress Stickles (oh I got some new Spiced Marmalad Distress Stickles and it is soooooo yummy) to add some glitter/shine.  The image is from Kenny K and I have coloured her in with Promarkers, cut her out with a Nestabilities die, distressed the edges and mounted it on a Pampered Pets embossing folder which I cut out and distressed the edges.  I have used a Cuttlebug stamp die-cut which I've had for about six months and it's never been out of the packet but I cut it into mirri card and then cut in half for the corners accent as needed by the sketch.  The card is finished off with some bright orange ribbon, red/orange card candy, sentiment off the computer and some thin lace tied as a ribbon.  So for Sketch and Stash Challenge you have to follow the sketch and also use some new/neglected stash (I have used some very neglected papers and used my new Distress Stickles).
