Strike a pose

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for a fun layout.

I used some of my Christmas money to buy some stamps from Sugar Nellie and this is the first one I have used, from the Simply Sassy range. I want to try out some different colour combos this year and this one if the first of them. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Her boots were coloured with Spectrum Noirs. I coloured her dress to match the backing paper. The papers are Echo Park Walk in the Park. I have used an MS border punch, MS butterfly and hydrangea punches, Sizzix scroll die, pins, card candi, brads and pins. The sentiment is LOTV on which I have used DI vintage photo.
Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl 2nd entry using the sketch
Card Makin' Mamas New (image)
CES Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' Spots and dots
Cute Card Thursday What's new (image)

oh this is really spooky - Faith dropped her felt tip pens on the floor so she was picking them off the floor and handing them to me to put back in the container, she handed me 3 together (mauvey pink, aqua and lime and I thought they would make a great colour combo, and you have 2 of those colours on your card - fantastic
