Some Odd Girl - Tweet Kaylee for a Hello Card.

Hi again!
Yesterday, I went into work early, so I was home by midday (wooh!) and after napping, decided I really needed to craft.... So, I printed out a digi image that has been in my stash a while and coloured her up -
This is Tweet Kaylee, and she was printed directly on to my watercolour paper. I then used my Stampin' Write Markers to colour her in, being careful to avoid the printer ink (it will smudge.) I then fussy cut her out and set her aside to create the rest of my card. The base is White card, layered up with bright yellow paper from Echo Park and some retired patterned paper from Stampin' Up. I then tied a big bow using Ivory Horizontal Stripe ribbon from Ribbon Carousel  *swoon* and stamped my sentiment "hello" using my Basic Black Marker. I added some red rhinestones to finish off the panel and popped Kaylee up on a whole bunch of dimensionals!
I am entering this into three challenges (cause I needed a lot of help with this one) the first is the Ribbon Carousel Sketch which I have edited slightly to fit my image, next up is the colour challenge for The Paper Players and last but not least is the Bright Colours challenge over at Some Odd Girl.
