Meet my New Best Friend (and 10 new challenges! LOL)

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
You know how I love digital stamps?
And you know how sassy the stamps by Victoria Case are?
Well now I'm in heaven as I found she sells digi's as well as rubber stamps!
You can find her wonderful designs at Victoria Case Art Designs and of course she also designs for Susana's Custom Art in the wonderful rubber versions (I have the whole 1st release as I won a super blog candy from Suzanne at Scrapbitz earlier this year but I see they have a new set too!)
She also has a challenge blog and I squeaked in under the wire with this card! LOL
Victoria Case wanted us to use any of her designs (rubber or digi) and the colors Blue and Brown.
Creative Inspirations also had the Blue and Brown color combo
and Everybody Art Challenge chose that combo too!
Tuesday Taggers wanted Buttons and Bows and are giving a great prize sponsered by The Craft Emporium
One Stop Craft Challenges wanted Cute and Cuddly, I think the kitty is pretty cuddly!
A Spoon Full of Sugar wanted some distressing and I inked the edge of the image oval and added ink to the lace for an older/vintage look
Stamp With Fun provided the sketch
Digital Tuesday wanted Lace and Pearls and I hope my blue "pearls" count here ;)
Finally there were two "recipe" challenges that seemed to work well together.
Dare U2 Digi had the recipe of 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 flowers and Cupcake Crafts wanted 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 buttons, I think I covered all my bases!

The image was from an older Victoria Case CD compilation called Girls that you can find here, you do have to email her to order but she mails them out super quick and the images are just wonderful to work with.
I colored her with Copic's, the dp are K&Co from two different collection, the blue "pearls" are Martha Stewart at Walmart, the flowers are Prima and the sentiment is Sticko. The ribbon, lace and bow are all Offray and the buttons just from my stash.

The inside is just more dp with a rectangle message block.

This girl reminds me of myself a long time ago before life and kids got the better of me! LOL

I hope you enjoy this one, I truly enjoyed making it.
Remember to add yourself as a follower to be in win a chance to win some goodies from me on Saturday.

Great card! I just love it and I would love to know where you got the ticket from. Caroline x

Katie said...

It's a sticker from Sticko (used to be Stickopotomus). I don't know where in the UK you could get it unless Hobby Craft sell them. I got mine from Hobby Lobby here in the US.
I hope that helps a little.
