Cutting it fine!

Hello all!
Dashing in quickly to post this card for the current Kenny's Krafty Krew challenge which ends in less that 2 hours!!  Talk about leaving it until the last minute.........
      At least I managed to get the card made fairly quickly (for me, anyhow) as this time around, the challenge is a sketch one.  So, I didn't waste hours going through hundreds of different layout ideas and then rejecting them all - my usual way of card designing!

      No time to chatter, so here it is -

 
 
I used the digi "Devilish Donna" and in light of the name, coloured her with some hot pinks and gave her black hair.  The sketch gave me a chance to use up some scraps of paper for the background, with some ribbon and craft tape to add interest. The sentiment was done using the print and cut technique on my Cameo - I think the font is called Angelic War which seemed appropriate.
 
 
   I would also like to enter her into the challenges at http://thepoodlesparlour.blogspot.com/ (winged things), http://inthepinkchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ (things with wings) and http://littlemissmuffetchallenges.blogspot.com/ (pink).
 
 


 
Thanks for popping in :)

Hi, Dawn! Sorry to be so late in commenting on your card. I am preparing to move from one city to another and have been so busy with that that I am just now getting to it. Your card is awesome! You did a wonderful job coloring the image and I love all the layers you added to your design. Thanks for joining us at Kenny K's Krafty Krew last week.

She's gorgeous and you colored her wonderfully. I especially love her hair and her eye color.

Good for you for using older papers and scraps! Did you know that means that you can buy new paper? Yep. It's true. Any time you use older paper and/or scraps, you can buy replacements. It's the law. *grin*
