Blueberry girl

Happy Friday!!

Today I decided to play in this week's Mo's Digital Challenge. The theme this week is "special folds and flowers". I think the fold I used is called "gate fold".

I purchased the strawberry and blueberry girl from Mo Manning's store a few weeks ago and just hadn't had time yet to use them. And I really wanted to before summer is over.
For today's card I used Blueberry girl. What a cutie and so much fun to color!


It's been printed on couture 80lb card stock which I purchased at I heart papers. Again, I used my derwent coloursoft pencils blended with baby oil. For the skin I used a couple of copic markers.

My designer paper is by basic grey (wisteria collection), card stock is elegant eggplant from Stampin Up. It's amazing how well the eggplant card stock matches the purple in the designer paper!

The card is kept pretty simple. Sketch was inspired by the sketch from Just Magnolia. I embellished with a prima flower (sponged it with eggplant ink to make it match better), some tulle, a button and ribbon. Distressed and sponged the edges and then I did some stitching with my janome mini. Of course I had to add some glitter too. My sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set.

Here is a picture of the card opened.
Besides Mo's challenge I am also entering it to these:
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
Have a great weekend!!
