Some Odd Girl - Thank you Mae

Hi guys! It's been quiet over here recently huh? Well, last week, I got home from work to find that my housemate had packed his things, and moved out. He'd left me a note... Yeah, so I was a bit devastated, add to that the fact that my uni assignment is due today (finished it earlier!) and I haven't had time or energy to craft.... I made this card though last night, as I needed a break....
This card started out very differently in my head.... But, I do love where it ended up! I actually coloured and paper pieced Mae (Thank You Mae stamp set) a couple of nights ago, and then lost motivation, so she sat on my desk looking up at me with those big green eyes, until I added her to a card.... The base (which is hard to see) is Crumbcake, layered with Vanilla cardstock and patterned paper from Kaisercraft and Simple Stories Fabulous Paper Pad. That big doily? It's a new addition to my ever growing die collection, one from Cheery Lynn Designs, which is a new line The Stamp Spot is carrying! I added a strip of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon and tied a bow. The sentiment is from the Thank You Mae stamp set, and was stamped on scraps of Crumbcake card, and cut to fit. I added 6 black little rhinestones to finish off this card.
I am entering this into the Some Odd Girls monthly challenge, which for the month of May is a sketch (see below) I loved the design teams interpretations :) I am also entering this into the Ribbon Carousel's Photo Inspiration I took inspiration from the colours of the photo :) Also, a big Happy 1st Birthday to the Ribbon Carousel!!
