What a Cutie

A happy weekend to all.  Work is finished and craft begins.  The weather here is fabulous and I should be out in the sun but I  have card withdrawal as I have been busy this week.

Today's card is the cutest image and has been such a joy to work with.  The card features 'Hazel' from Wee Stamps  and she and her friend are wonderful.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Divas by Design - Challenge 11 a sketch!

Now onto the cutie patootie

I have coloured this lovely image using Promarker pens and am really enjoying using the new Flexmarker pens to shade.  They will lighten and shade a darker color and give lots of definition and I love them. I have used some glitter to add lovely sparkle to the design.  There are three little pumpkin embellishments also on the front of the card.   I have used a Play ticket from Tim Holtz and flowers from my stash.  The background is created from various design papers.  I have used a free digital paper from Bearly Mine Designs - April 07,  Roses 09 digital paper purchased from Bearly Mine and a Sheet of K & Co from my stash.  The clock is made using a Tim Holtz idea-ology mask, these are fabulous and so easy to use.  I used 4 shades of distress inks to colour the clock face.  Thin satin ribbon and twine has also also been used.

A closer view of this sweet image to show detail and colouring.

On the inside of the card I have used matching papers.

The Tim Holtz Clock face mask with distress inks and tag which I printed and inked and mounted.

Showing further details of papers used and an Autumn pumpkin topper from my stash.  There is a panel for recording a greeting.  This card would be great for Halloween or a September/October Birthday.

Thank you for reading this post.  I hope you like the card.  Please leave feedback as its great to hear your comments.

Sending warmest wishes to all.
