Managed one!

Hi blogland

This is going to be a really quick post - I've left Emily upstairs playing with her toys and she is already calling me!

So I managed to make a card - have been colouring the image in stages for about 3 days and put it together last night.  Of course it had to go completely wrong the first time and so this is my second set of patterned papers!

Anyway card:
Front shot:

Trying to get the detail on the lifted panels (but don't think it worked!):

Card details:
Image: Funky Kits - Simply Sassy; 5th Avenue (one of the ones I treated myself to after looking at them longingly on Coops blog (coops you are a bad influence!- not that I need one really!!!)).  Coloured with my Promarkers - still not happy with the colouring on the face, I really need to work on the blending - and die-cut with a nestie.
The papers are: backing paper - Making Memories; Boho Chic and panels - Blonde Moments; Sugar Dumping.
The sentiment and card blank are from Craftwork Cards (altho the sentiment has been cut down from the original size).

Am entering this card into:

The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 67 - Erika's Sketch, Theme use scraps - the hearts on the panels are scraps.
Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge 16 - Tickled Pink

Sorry it's such a rush, got to go!
