Lift an Odd Girl Challenge

Have you checked out the new challenge over at Some Odd Girl?  The challenge is to lift an odd girl.  So I spent some time roaming through the odd girl design team blogs.  I say that like I have never done that before, right?!! LOL, of course I have. I seriously love these stamps. They are some of the funnest images to color.  When I stumbled upon the card at Zarah's and in english blog I knew it was the one I wanted to lift.  You can find her card here.  I hope you can see the lift. :)  I used the new clear stamp Sweet Thinkin Mae.  She is from the new releases. You knew I had to have her!!

I pulled out some of my favorite papers from My Mind's Eye and decided to paper piece her dress and bow.  I added some flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, some dragon fly buttons and fancy pants pins.

The little charm is from my stash from when I used to sell CTMH.

Mae has been popped up.  I used E-000,01,11,13 for her skin and my favorite pinks R-89,85,83 for her shoes and shrug.  Her eyes are YG-83 and 85.  I distressed the edges and added some ink with CTMH creme brulee ink.   We wouldn't be done til I showed you the inside of my card.

I am going to add this to the challenge at Moving Along with the times that wants us to use our favorite things. They are Some Odd Girl, My Mind's Eye papers, copics, and wild orchid craft flowers.
Lollipop Crafts has anything goes.
Sparkles forum challenge has lace and elegance. 
Totally Papercrafts has girly girls for the challenge.
Do you stack up is stitching.
Little Darlings Challenges is buttons, brads or eyelets. I used buttons.

So gorgeous Brenda. That stamp is lovely, I thought it was a digi and looked all over for it, but it's obviously a clear stamp, duh! Your card is stunning, she works so well with that lovely pp. Did you try out for the team?
