Deep in Thought


I decided to play with my fabulous Reading Relish stamps (Rogue Redhead Designs) and staped this thoughtful little girl with Stampin' Up Cajun Craze onto Kraft cardstock.  I cut her out with a Circle Nestability and then sponged some more ink round the edges.  The cream base card has a layer of lovely blue card which I've edged with a stamp by Hot of the Press from their Edges and Border set (also in Cajun Craze). The bg paper by Laura Ashley (Traditional) and I've added some rust ribbon on top with a lovely bow tied with my bow maker.  I found a lovely little vintage blue button that I tied some ribbon through just to finish it all off.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Card Patterns - Sketch
The House that Stamps Built - DCC Colour challenge (Kraft, Robin's Egg Blue, Rust and a neutral of your choice)
