a Summer day in Paris card....

Hi! I'm back!

Well, today I've got for you a summer card... Yeah, I know, it's January! and freezing and snowing in some places! but I just fancied to make a summer card. I'm just like that, out of season! well, it's Summer in the Southern Hemisphere!

And this card didn't come easy.... Does it happen to you? I'm in the mood for crafting, but I get stuck... moving things around, staring at the papers for hours to see which ones works better... and I mean... hours! but after all that, the satisfaction of seeing the finished card... and being happy with it... I guess that's the fun of card-making!

So this is the card I'm showing you today...

I used a digital stamp by Some Odd Girl called "Scooter Mae". I love her! 
It's the first time I've used a Some Odd Girl stamp, but not the last for sure! I love them all.

The papers I've used are from:  Dovecraft Princess Fairytale, First Edition Dreamcatcher paper pad and Parisian Dreams Paper Collection by Jenny Ellory.

As always, I coloured Mae with my Promarkers:

For her hair: Raw Sienna, Sandstone, Buttermilk and Eggnog.
For her skin: Vanilla, Almond, Satin and Blossom.
For her eyes: cornflower and powder blue.
For her clothes, hat and scooter: Pink Carnation, Blossom, Powder Pink, Orchid, Lilac, Lavender, Cool Grey 5. Cool Grey 3 and Cool Grey 1. 

I also used:
Sizzix Doily Die and Swiss dots embossing folder for some texture.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad in Milled Lavender
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Marianne Creatables leaves die
Dovecraft ribbon
Flowers, buttons, heart rhinestones and card candy from local shops.
Glitter glue from Hobbycraft in flowers and butterflies.
a bit of washi tape (star) from local shop.
Sentiments created with my computer.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Created with Love #72 - Color Challenge Pink and Purple
