Some Odd Girl Stash Challenge: No DSP

Hi All,

This week's challenge over on the Some Odd Girl blog is to make a project with no designer papers!  Now, I know there are some fanatics out there that cannot make anything without those special papers!  For me, I usually use them, but I can do without if I have to.
I used the adorable Curtsy Kaylee for this card. I {heart} her!!! She is perfect for colouring!

Here it is:

My card base is Marigold Morning CS, then a layer of Whisper White, then Basic Black.
For the main panel, I took a piece of Whisper White CS, and stamped the sentiment in Basic Black ink.  It is from a Close To My Heart alphabet that is made for stitching.  Can you guess what I did all last night?  Yup, stitched those letters in!  I used some black thread and a needle to hand-stitch everything.  I matted that with a Basic Black layer, then a Baja Breeze layer.

I printed Kaylee onto PTI White CS, coloured her in with Copics, cut her out, and mounted her on with Dimensionals.  I think this is my favourite Kaylee image!  But, it's really hard to choose...they are all so cute!

By the way, don't forget to download this month' free image: Mae!  She is Kaylee's best friend, and you will be seeing a lot of her coming up on April 20th!!!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
