Guest design slot for Fab 'n' Funky: girly card

This is my final week as a guest designer for Fab 'n' Funky - I've so enjoyed being able to join the team this month - five fabulous challenges.

For challenge 173: for the girls, I was provided with the lovely 'Raggedy girl - adorably yours (pigtails) image Kathryne at Stampart design,, sponsor for the challenge.

I used papers that I had free with a magazine. I wouldn't normally mix red and pink, but I think it works here. I coloured the image with spectrum noirs (they are fast becoming my favourites) and cut out with a Nellie Snellen die, using the next part of the die for the surrounding layer which was cut from textured DCWV card.  The birthday ribbon is by Sass belle ( and the piece across the middle is upcycled from a wrapping around flowers. The flowers are Craftime.

I followed the sketch for Seize the birthday17 (although the challenge has now closed):
