Sweet Dee Dee



Hello Everyone,
I put this card together over the weekend for a couple of blog challenges. The inspiration for my card was taken from this photo inspired challenge held by Quixotic and this was a tough challenge! My base colors are black and green and I plugged in the remaining colors as accents.


The sketch was taken from Sketch Saturday and the design papers are all from Stampin' Up. My image is from The Greetings Farm and her name is Dee Dee.



Dee Dee is colored in with Copic Markers and I lightly air brushed her background with B00. Other embellishments are the large Nesties scalloped circular die, ribbon, half pearls and Stickles.

Well....this post is going to be a brief one, I have a ton of cleaning to do before company from Florida arrives Wednesday afternoon. Have a beautiful day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

OMG! This looks just like a little girl I saw at brunch yesterday! She was holding her daddy's hand and she stopped at the end of my table and looked at me with the slyest of grins and just burst out laughing. All those gorgeous curls on her head and I think she was laughing at my pin straight hair. She made my day. What colors did you use for your skin/face? I haven't done any darker skins yet. And I cheat. I use part Copic and part pencil. And none of them are on my blog, since I can't get my butt in gear.
