Something a Bit Different

I finished a card today that's definitely not my usual style. I'm not sure how it happened - I can't even blame a DT challenge!

See what I mean? Where are the bright colours? (And where is that poor girl's nose and mouth, but that's a different story.)

The image is a Gorjuss Girl one - stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. I cut it with a Spellbinders die, leaving her legs as you see. I then 'aged' the background with various Distress Inks and finished with a threaded ribbon which I'd already coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from Personal Impressions. I've had this set for ages, but the colours are so muted, I rarely use them.

Having done that, I made some flowers. For those I used some of my Sizzix Susan's Garden dies and a Crealies die for the leaf shapes.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Party Time Tuesdays where anything goes,
Crafty Ribbons where anything goes (with a ribbon),
Delightful Challenges where they want us to 'make the cut',
Papercrafting Journey where anything goes,
Lady Anne where anything goes,
Cuttlebug Mania where anything goes (with die cuts),
Creative Corner where the theme is 'Child's Play'.
Sister Act where anything goes,
Delicious Doodles where they want 'anything floral' (hope the paper and embellishments are 'floral' enough.)
