Some Odd Girl - Gifty Gwen and I make a For You Card

Hi guys! Sorry I have been a terrible blogger lately... I've been quite busy house hunting and working. So, I haven't had a lot of time in the craft room, and when I've been in there, my mojo has gone walk a bouts... I did get a flash of mojo this afternoon though and created this card -
This is a Daffodil Delight (Über bright!) and layered it with Basic Gray and some fun, ticket patterned paper from My Minds Eye Dilly Dally 6x6 paper pad. I then set to colouring Gifty Gwen (The Stamp Spot stocks a range of Some Odd girls!) I coloured her with my Stampin' Write Markers, and a blender pen, cut her out and added her to some white card with some foam dimensionals. I tied a Island Indigo bow around the white card and layered it onto some Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray card. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, and finished off the card with some bright red rhinestones. 
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Ribbon Carousel Challenge, which this week was to use bright colours.... Surprisingly, I really struggled with this.... I think it's the lack of mojo! And next up is the Card Patterns Sketch which I put extra layers on... I'm not usually an excess layer person, at all!
Thanks for dropping by!
