Some Odd Girl: Sleepy Mae

Hi All,

Today, I am participating in FOUR challenges with my card! I can't believe it!  I decided to use one of the new releases from Some Odd Girl: Sleepy Mae.  I couldn't resist her - she is soooo cute!

The first challenge is a sketch from the Allsorts Challenge blog:
I also played along with the AiFactory Challenge blog to implement some distressing!  On my card, I distressed the main panel, as well as the card base, and I also covered the main panel in distress ink.

Next, I played along with the Drunken Stampers Challenge blog: to use some sparkle, and to colour!  Well, since my favourite thing to do is to colour, I had no problem colouring Mae in with my Copic markers, and my bling is the Martha Stewart glitter and I covered Mae's pants in Sky Blue Shimmerz.

Lastly, I joined in with the Pile It On Challenge blog: to use stickers.  The large heart on my main panel is actually one of those Sticky Cutz stickers (I covered it in glitter).

My card base is Whisper White (distressed with a Distress Tool), followed by a layer of Night of Navy and Close to Cocoa.  The navy piece was punched with an SU edge punch as well.  I cut a bunch of squares out of Whisper White CS with my 1 3/4" Square punch, and embossed them with my Bloom Dots Cuttlebug folder.  I wrapped some White Organdy ribbon around that whole base layer.

For the main panel, I distressed some Whisper White CS using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Weathered Wood, and matted it with a Night of Navy piece.  Both of those were distressed with my distress tool from SU.  I took the Sticky Cuts sticker from SU, and stuck it to the panel, and covered it with some Martha Stewart glitter.

I printed Mae onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with a thin white border around.  I painted her pj pants with Sky Blue Shimmerz, and covered the heart on her shirt with the same MS glitter.
