Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 19...Buttons and Bows...Blimey!!!

Hey Krafty friends! Today is the day that I have been waiting for...I'm heading to Toronto to go to the Bella Boutique and take a Copic class with Linda Heavens. I am so super excited I think I might just burst,lol!
We have a new challenge for you at the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge blog! This week Andrea is the Krafty Girl to set the challenge and she is asking us to make card with Buttons and Bows! She has made a super cute card with EmmyLou and the puppies called Puppy Love...and if you join the challenge and use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps image on your creation then you will be entered into the random draw to win the Puppy Love stamp that is up for grabs this week!
Now, did you happen to swing by the KKS blog yesterday?! And did you just happen to read about a KKS Spring Stamp Kit featuring images by Annie Rodrigue?! And did you happen to see the super cute snippets of said Spring Kits images?! If not, you might just want to happen by and take a peek...here!
Now on to my card! I really tried to rein in my need to pile it on! I only used one patterned paper from a 6x6 MME glitter paper pad that I picked up at Micheals and kept the card design very simple! I am rather happy with how this card turned out...a little out of my comfort zone but it was a fun card to make! I really loved colouring this image of Polly the Bar Wench too!!! I took my time and tried to really do a good job of her hair! Not sure if you can see it in the image but I picked up a tip from Krafty Girl Michele and used my Black Glaze pen to accentuate her beauty mark and added some clear glaze pen to her lips for a glossy look! Thanks, Michele!!!
I cut the image out with my Nesties and used one of my new Tim Holtz Distress inks, Bundled Sage, to colour in the background! I just love all the new Distress ink colours they are just perfection! I used some American Crafts cardtstock, Prism Cardstock and American Crafts ribbon and buttons from my stash! the sentiments is from the Kimmie's Pirate sentiments set!

Here is the inside sentiment from the Kimmie's Sassy Sentiments!
Well, I hope you can play along with the Kraftin Kimmie's Challenge this week! Take a stop by the blog and read about the Spring Stamp Kit and check out the fabulous creations by the Krafty Girls!
Hope you have a stampin' great day! I know I am going to,smile!
