Cutie Patootie!

I just couldn't resist joining the new challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studio Designs this week as it is an 'Anything Goes' challenge, and I have a few of her wonderful images that I've been dying to use for ages! The one I have used today is called Cutie Patootie and you can find it and lots of other amazing images in Michelle's Etsy store.

Isn't she wonderful?! My DPs are from The Paper Shelter, and are called Shopping Girl. I coloured the image with Promarkers, cut it out with a nestie and inked the background and edges.

I added some delicious guipure lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and decoupaged some extra flowers from the DP and added them using two layers of foam pads to give extra depth.

I then added some flat-backed pearls, card candy and gems to finish. I also decorated the inside to match...

I am pleased with the finished card, I love the image and the DPs and think it all came together really well.
As well as the Michelle Perkett Studio Design challenge I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
