Stampin' for the Weekend - Week 10

For this weeks challenge, Vicki has given us this lovely sketch to work with, and I have to say I really enjoyed it!

Thanks Sweetie!

We have a lovely sponsor this week too..
Sir Stampalot who is offering one lucky crafter a
'My Favorite Things - Isabelle Paper Doll Clear Stamp Set!'
So for my card I decided to ink up this Gorgeous Sugar Nellie - Manga Girl which I bought fromFunky Kits when they were first released (Have since bought the other three hehe).

I think she is brilliant, and I've seen her around on some blogs and she is so versatile too.

I bought some fabric from the local quilting shop a while ago and decided to use some as inspiration for her tights and arms. So I started to colour her with those exact colours. However, I had no papers to match. So I cut up the fabric and wrapped it round some card and hey presto, bobs your uncle I had some groovy backing :o)

I layered up some retro flowers and stamped out a sentiment, popped em all together and I think it looks very funky!!
Another little view of the card.

Please head on over to Stampin' for the Weekend and check out the Teams Fabulous takes on Vicki's Sketch! They've done a fantastic job!!
