LOTV DT Card & Challenges!!!!

(click on photo to get a bigger picture and more detail of the distressing)

This week over at the LOTV Challenge blog, Dawny has come up with a fab sketch and I have to say I really like this one. I have used Dandilion Clock and coloured her with Copics. Not done "blue" hair before and not my usual colour combo but pretty pleased with how she looks. Papers are BG Lime Rickey and have used Flowers and MS Butterflies to blend with the chosen colours on my stamp. Sentiment is WOJ, punched with EK Success and a strip of Ribbon behind. Now if you look closely at the papers I have sanded them down with the new "Heart Attack Distressing Tool" from WRE. Omg, I just love this little gadget, literally sands the paper but also has a blade of you want to do a bit of roughing up on he edges. Just love it!!! 
This weeks prize is from The Ribbon Girl and as usual the rest of my teamies have made the most beautiful cards. If you like sketches then I think you'll enjoy this one.

Heres my list of challenges;
Catch the Bug -Anything Goes
Stampin with the Dragon - Anything Goes
Pear Tree Designs - Free for All

And back on Saturday with more........
Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping by my blog today.
