Just a little note...

Hello peoples...
hope you are having a lovely week so far?

I've been busy working on a few projects, and have a few things half made... hope to be able to share them soon :)

Today though, I'm sharing a Simply Sassy Card... its my first time posting on the Simply Sassy blog today...
is it silly to be so nervous about it?
I feel like its a really big deal, and I'm paranoid that I'm not creating stuff that's good enough...
still can't get my head round getting picked!

Anyway, heres my card...

 I've used the oh so sweet  'Lost In Music' 
You can grab her HERE at Funky Kits 

I first created a little 'hill' for her to sit on, by attaching a little bit of paper to a background of Kraft card.
Then stamped the image directly onto this. I stamped a second image onto white cardstock and coloured her with Promarkers, cut her out, and attached her over the original image... 
(by doing this I didn't have to cut out any fiddly bits, like certain sections of her hair, 
and the headphone cables)

I doodled some flower stems on the 'hill' and added some little paper flowers, and gave her a little bow for her hair, which I made using a tiny scrap of fabric, and a tiny heart button.

The papers are a bit of a mix... the musical note paper is Echo Park -Victoria Gardens
The pink flower paper is MME
Houndstooth paper from Pink Paisley
And I'm not sure of the others, they were from my scrap drawer.
Main background is Kraft.

I doodled the 'note' on pink gingham paper, and hand cut.
The sentiment stamp is from ladybug and friends

To finish, I've added a few drops of ranger enamel accents in black and white, and doodled around the edges with a black fineliner.

And that's about it!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges...

City Crafter - do-ya doodle? (Yes I do... lots lol!)
Kenny K Anything Goes (summer fun)
Sentimental Sundays - flowers plus sentiment
Allsorts - Red

Thanks for stopping by... oh and pop over to the Simply Sassy blog later to see my first post!!
nothing you haven't seen here, but its more exciting seeing it!
