Sassy Cheryl's/Basic Grey

For my card, I combined two challenges. Sassy Cheryl's Challenge for this week was to a use a Sassy Cheryl 'girl' image and include ribbon in our card or 3-D project. I love to use sketches for layout inspiration, so I used the sketch from Basic Grey Sketch Challenge #17.

Here is my "sassy" card...

Stamp: The Frills Digi Stamp (Sassy Cheryl's), Smarty Pants (SU!)
Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops, DCWV textured cardstock, Baja Breeze (SU!)
Ink: Ink Jet Printer, Copics
Accessories: Branch Punch, Leaf Punch, Prima's Flowers, Half Pearls (SU! Pretties), Organza Ribbon, Stickles

She is so adorable. Cheryl offered her as a special gift for reaching 300 members on Paper Craft Planet. If you like this image, you should check out her group. They are a fun bunch of gals.

Here is a closeup of her face. I figured if she was dressing up, she would probably wear some of her mom's makeup, so I used Prismacolor pencils to add a little eye shadow and lipstick. I added Stickles to her glasses and tiny pearls to her earrings.

When I look at the image, I think this is the PERFECT saying. She looks like she is doing the Hokey Pokey.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
