Thankful For All You Do

The challenge over at Some Odd Girl this week (and next) is a Thank You challenge.  I decided to use a ticket stamp that I have from Whimsy called Ticket Sentiments.  I pulled out some of my favorite My Mind's Eye papers and my new favorite clear stamp Sweet Thinkin Mae.  I wanted to give the card some 3-D effect so I paper pieced and added pop dots cut really tiny to her hair, bow, dress, and shoes.
I have been playing with my sewing machine and ribbon lately.  I love this turquoise polka dotted ribbon, all rouched up with a sheer polka dot ribbon on top.  Next I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, a little purple clip and there you go!
I used my favorite copic skin colors~E-000, 01, 11, 13, and E-93.  For her hair I used E-21, 23, 3=25, 27, and 29.  I added some RV-63 and 66 to her dress and bow just to give a little highlight. And her eyes are YG-93 and 95 cuz my eyes are green. :) I also added some glossy accents to them.
This was such a fun card to do.  I don't know about you but card making is my therapy!!  I really appreciate you stopping by.  

OK, now let's see what challenges I can add my card to.

Clever Brenda!! Seriously, love the hair-popping idea, I really love these SOG images...though these are not the ones I've-bought-and-haven't-used-yet (am trying, time is my enemy, lol) and I love the palette for this card too - three "loves", not very original but the best description of how much I like your card, Dee :-)
