No PP or DP....

Hello everyone!! Are you ready for Thanksgiving? It is almost here. The good food, family and friends a good thing.

This card is for a challenge over at The Greeting Farm. The challenge was to not use any designer or pattern paper. I used a cuttle bug embossing folder to make the flowers in the background. I have had this little lady for a little while now and am finally inking her up. I wasn't sure at first how I wanted to use her. This little hippie kind of takes me way back. I am probably going to date myself a little but while in high school during home economics (sewing) I remember making a dress with a nehru jacket with some sort of bright colors. It is so funny because I don't have it now but I can actually picture it as if I just looked at it in my closet. I sort of went with a few of the colors in that dress.

I started by stamping Hippie Anya with Momemto Tuxedo Black on PTI Stamper's Select White and color her with my copics. I so need to more practice and colors. I just love these markers because of the blending and how the colors look. I cut her out with one of my new nestablilities Labels 9. I used Orange Zest from PTI to distress the edges. I also colored the flowers with my copics. The base of the card is Orange Zest. The lime colored ribbon I had in my stash and put some other ribbon I had on top of it.

Thanks for stopping by today,
