Get Creative Challenge #11, Oddball Art Miss You Card

Good morning friends,

I'm so excited to announce that I am the newest member over at Get Creative Challenges.  Now this is completing outside of my comfort zone but I am thrilled to step outside of it!  I accepted to be a SUB on the challenge team about a month ago and was ready to show my first card two weeks ago, but fate held up it's hand and said, "wait just a moment"!  A couple days later Angie told us that someone had to step down and would any of the subs be interested in becoming a full designer?  I dove right in, so here we go!  The reason this is outside of my comfort zone is that I have never done digi stamps before.  I've always been a regular stamper when I was making cards.  I have a boatload of stamps but hardly ever use them.  Maybe I should sell them, NAH!  Anyway, let's get to the challenge.

This is the image I chose from Oddball Art

She is so cute but to me she looked sad and lonely and from that I created a "Miss You" card.  I know that's not what she stands for, but that was the inspiration I went with.  
Also for this challenge you MUST use a die cut of some sort.  

I used up papers, a velum quote and ribbons from my stash (again, trying to use up my hoarding supplies).  
I added some flowers that I cut with my Cricut and SCAL2 as my diecut to match the paper I went with.

I colored her using various pencils, chalks and even some pastel crayons.  
I think for my first card I did ok!

I also popdotted her to make her more of the focal of my card.  
As always, I have to use bling so I added some 
rhinestones to the flowers and the edge of the card.  
I am very pleased with the outcome and hope you come over and join us at Get Creative Challenges.  
Just link up with us and we will choose 3 winners!
