Good grief, a challenge card

OK, so, I've been off work this week and whilst it has been baking hot and in between
going out to different places and laying on the floor like a limp lettuce, I have been making
Christmas cards (aaargh) for my mother's order.  Feeling a little underwhelmed, I decided
it was time I perked things up with a challenge so had a mooch around to see what I could
find and, lo, what should behold me but a Wednesday Sketch Challenge from MFT Card Challenges

and here is the sketch

I am a sucker for these Pure Innocence little girls so when this one popped up in the new
release I knew that she would be coming home to me.

So, I have used for this:
a retired Die-Namics Window die
Black card is from PDA Card & Craft and the brown for the
window frame is Papermania pearlised

I did the clouds with Broken China Distress Ink Oxide and a finger dauber
and the image (the bits not paper pieced) is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) with
Polychromos Pencils for her hair

Twice in one day is a bit much for a little squirrel so I am off to find a cool, dark, room
to whimper in for a little while!

Hugs to all

A great take on the sketch and I love the clouds in the window. Perfect paper piecing too (very patient!) and it's nice to see the colours drawn out even into the backing paper behind the black. Lovely card hun. xx
