Ginghams or Checks

Yoohooo people! :) It's Tuesday, and that meaaaaaaaaaaaans it's time for a new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers! Can I get a *woop - woop*

Now you say *woop - woop* LOL!! Wanna know what the theme is this week.. 


Set by our lovely Jane from Milliesmarvels. Head over to the Passion for ProMarkers blog to see what is up for grabs by the lucky winner! ;)

So.. I decided to go down the ginghams route, as I've got some delicious gingham ribbons from The Ribbon Girl! I've used kinda.. warm autumnal colours on this card.. pairing my image up with some More Mustard cardstock from SU!and Max and Whiskers papers from Basic Grey.

Meet Simply Anya from The Greeting Farm - she's been coloured with.. PMs and FMs of course! I made this card a while back.. because I've been trying my hardest to get ahead with DT work (not sure how well that is actually going..) so unfortunately I don't have the slice of paper I wrote my combos down on! Soweee!! I love that red hair though - isn't it yummy?!

So.. I've added a kinda glow around Anya and added some little dots to match the papers - kinda like my last PfP card. I've cut her out using my largest circle nestie. This card is pretty light on embellishments - it was being mailed so I didn't want to add any big WOC flowers or anything. I've used my Bow-Easy to create a cute little double bow which I've added down the bottom of the circle. Hmm.. some delicious orange kinda gemstone brad thingys from Papermania to the right of the cirle aaaaaaaaand.. some little banners from Whimsy which I've stamped in Soft Suede ink onto some more More Mustard cardstock and hand cut them out.

How cute is that paper from Basic Grey?! Gahhh!! Perfect for an animal lover! :) Look at the little tortoise!! Heehee.

So I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
