Kraftin' Kimmie - Thanks to You...

Hi guys! 
I've been crafting again... This one was made on Thursday night, and I'm only just getting around to blogging it... Working really does get in the way of craft time teehee...
This card, inevitably turned out very different to what I had planned... I wanted to play with new patterned papers, from Echo Park, or Teresa Collins, got them out, and couldn't make it work.... So, I dove back into the stash, and came up with this super fun, bright hearts pattern from Amy Tangerine... I found some grey polka dot paper too, from American Crafts. I decided to paper piece this little chickies dress, (she's a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp) I coloured her up using my Spectrum Noir markers and added some shading to her dress. I then trimmed her out, and set her aside. I mounted the Amy Tan paper on black card, then added a strip of embossing (also mounted on black card) doodled around the edges, and added my main image panel. The sentiment is from Some Odd Girl, and I went back to my KK to attach her, using some dimensionals. I added a black banner, a wood veneer heart (coloured black and has doodling - see close up), I also added a yellow heart button, a plain green button and some enamel dots... 
Here's the close up-
for a card that was very different to what I wanted to make, I really like the finished product!

I had to laugh, my cards NEVER turn out how I plan. Sometimes not even the same colors or theme, lol. So consider yourself a true artist - as the spirit moves you. Love your charming card !! Thanks for sharing with us, and our readers at The Kraft Journal this week !!
