TGIF - 2 Challenges in 1

Greetings everyone... TGIF... here's wishing you all a fabulous weekend - wow, is it my imagination or did this week pass by quickly?  Like myself, I am sure all the Working Ladies are pleased this day has come as we can now relax and catch up with all the fabulous challenges on the go.  I thought I would start early and have managed to combine 2 challenges with this card.  I've followed the Sketch as set out by the Paper Take Weekly Challenge team and over at the  My Time To Craft Blog they asked you to use a Frame on your card.  This is my first time with the MTTC Blog, so I hope they like my little creation.

I've used the Manga Girl for the first time ever and love this little one with her cute boots. Coloured in with Copics and used my white gel pen to create highlights. The brown DP with the  big pink dots is from EK Success (bought from Paola) and the striped DP is from Making Memories (The Scrapbook Shop). Both matted onto pink card to give definition. The DP for the frame is a South African product called Cinnamon Spot by Tracy Schimper. The flowers are from my old stash and the pin with pearls is a new feature I enjoy using, bought from Paola.  The sprinkles in the corners are what I won in the Annabelle Bling Challenge Blog a while ago. They are really stunning... so I'm using them very sparingly...lol

I added some glitter glue to the flowers.  You can see it nicely from this angle. I am really pleased with this card and think I will keep it for myself to send to some special.  Thanks for visiting my little corner and I hope to see you back again soon... please leave a comment if you wish, as it always makes me happy to read them.  Will catch up with you later, Sharon
