Daring CardMakers meets Friday Sketchers

Here is a card I made this morning combining the sketch over on Friday Sketchers (#37) and the theme over on Daring CardMakers, to use three patterned papers. For my card I have used one of the new Elisabeth Bell stamps that I won as Blog Candy from Sugar Nellie, and she is called ChickaDee. I have coloured her with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Scattered Straw (Hair & Chick)
Peeled Paint (Dress & Hair Bows)
Spiced Marmalade (Apron)
Dried Marigold (Flowers in her hair)
The papers are all by My Minds Eye, but the two yellow ones are "29th Street Market" and the green is from "Dreamy2". I have also used some American Craft ribbon, a couple of Prima "Dude" Painterly Petals attached with a brad and spacer, a heart pin and some random bling. The swirls were done with my QK Revolution die and the sentiment is my Stampin' Up.

The cards over on both blogs are fab, and well worth a look....you can find links on the right hand side under my Challenge's List.
