Another TGF image

Happy cold and windy Wednesday huh? We got about 4 inches of snow last night and the wind is blowing to beat the band. Even my UPS man isn't braving it and that is saying a lot in Pennsylvania. This is my card for TGF's sketch challenge this week. I have used this gorgeous sparkly embossed black paper on my image but unfortunately I have no idea where I bought it and it was already cut up so I must have thrown out the description part awhile ago. I cut my flowers out of some felt from Giant Dwarf off of etsy (nice felt and very reasonable) and edged them with some stickles. I also put clear stickles on the flower in her hair then added some red and tried to swirl it around. Looked pretty good til I accidentally stuck my finger in it. I tried to go a little retro with her and give her red hair which didn't turn out too bad but not sure about the red mouth. She is also still looking a little pale so may have to change my skin technique. May have to give this to my best friend Missy who is italian. She is having surgery next week and the open mouth would fit her to a tee. Now if only I could make her arms move to like Missy does when she is talking it would be perfect!

Ok, gonna grab my cup of tea and a cookie and head back into the craft room. The dishes will be there when I get to them!
