The Digi Shack Sketch Challenge (TDSC03)

Here's my take on the sketch challenge over at The Digi Shack. I had a lot of fun making this card because I got to play with some of my new things from the Creating Keepsakes Convention in St. Louis. I walked around the showroom in a heavenly daze. I just loved everything & it was very hard to limit my purchases. Plus this fun image from the Digi Shack is just adorable, don't you think?

Fellow design team member, Mandy, gave us this sketch to create a card. Won't you play along too?

Here is the deets on my card:
The DP is a newer one from Basic Grey called Euphoria; summer patterns of lavender and pinks mixed with "willow green and lagoon blue". Although I don't usually go for purples, this set of papers struck my fancy. It was mounted on Perfect Plum cardstock. The image is from The Digi Shack; it was colored and cut out. Glitter was added to the nexklace and glaze to the nail polish. The hair flowers had crushed velvet flock. The brad seemed to match perfect although it was made by a different company. The purple twill was covered with lavender sheer ribbon to soften the intense color. What do you think?
