Some Odd Girl: A Mae Day

Hi All,

Thanks for stopping in today.  I have made a card for 3 challenges using the adorable A Mae Day image from Some Odd Girl!  BTW, there is a sketch challenge going on at the SOG Challenge blog, so you should head on over to submit your creation and try to win some great SOG prizes!

The sketch challenge I participated in is from Sketch Girl, and here it is:

I also had some colour inspiration from the Diedrich Dare blog, and here it is:


I also decided to participate in the Cupcake Craft challenge: to make a card that illustrated what summer means to me.  I love to spend time in my garden - I find it so fulfilling and relaxing, even though it is sometimes very hard work!

Here's my card:

My card base is Blue Bayou.  The next layer is some polka dot vellum from the SU Taste of Textiles DSP pack, matted with a Whisper White layer which was stamped with the SU Floral BG stamp in Sage Shadow ink.  I attached the vellum to that mat with some green brads.
The vertical strip is a piece of Bashful Blue textured CS, matted with Basic Black.  I used an adhesive border from the Summer Days Simply Scrappin' Kit to put down the middle.  The small rectangle is Marigold Morning CS matted with Basic Black.

I printed Mae onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with Nesties.  I matted that with a Basic Black scallop rectangle.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
