Some Odd Girl - Gifty Gwen

I have another quick and easy card to share with you. I've been super busy recently, and one of the ways I edge my way back into craft mojo territory is by making a clean and simple card... Here it is -
What I really wanted to do with this card was to make the chevron patterned paper 'make' this card.... so, I trimmed it out and left the bottom section intact, then attached it to some fairly basic ledger like paper (it has stripes all over it) and it's from the Echo Park This & That Charming 6x6 Paper Pad. I then stamped my Gifty Gwen on X-Press It blending paper  and onto some purple polka dotted paper by My Minds Eye. I then paper pieced this Some Odd Girls dress, and coloured the rest of her up using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I then fussy cut her out, and added some white highlights to her necklace, barrette and cheeks before attaching her with dimensionals to the patterned paper background. The sentiment has been stamped, and then cut out on more patterned paper and attached with lower foam dots than Gwen. I added a mini binder clip for my 'metal' accent so she would fulfil the requirements of this months challenge
 
I am also entering this into the Some Odd Girl Sketch Challenge, which can be found here
I'm also going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp We're So Trendy challenge - Chevrons
