Some Odd Girl - Thinking Of You

Greetings Oddies!!  Today I'm with you to bring a GORGEOUS color challenge - over at the Some Odd Girl Challenge Blog!!  You can see the colors above but you must head on over to the blog to see the unbelievable samples that the Design Team came up with!  SWOON!

I've used my clear Sweet Thinkin' Mae set which absolutely inks just beautifully!  I used my Momento ink and Copics for color.  
I went really dark on Mae's hair giving her skin a beautiful, warm glow.  I paper pieced her dress and shrug.  I used a sketch from my rapidly growing sketch book.  I used that term very loosely as they are not my sketches.  They are ones that I've collected here, there and everywhere.  I print them off and keep them stacked together.  I use a GIGANTIC and I do me hugemongus binder clip to hold them all together.  I am getting to the point where I'm going to have to either punch holes and use 3-rings or bring them to my local office supply store and have it spiral bound.  (Yes, they can do that!  It's so cool! And very cheap...easily under $4) I'll do a little video on that sometime. 

But I digress, I used all papers from from Authentique, cardstock from Bazzill and Recollections.  My card measures 5.25x5.25 to accommodate the Mae's height plus the two fabulous oval STAX from MFT.  
I used some self adhesive pearls on the corners as well as around my sentiment.  The bubbly oval is also included in this set as is the sentiment.
You know you want to grab this set right up!  It's so crazy cute!! 

Thanks for popping by!! I do hope you'll come join us with this simply beautiful color challenge!!

Crafty Hugs!
