Pink & Brown Gorjuss Girl

I've had a lovely crafty day today, almost all day in the craft room :o)  Dex's 2nd day at nursery and my nerves seem to have settled a bit!  Here's one of the cards I made today...



I've followed the sketch at the Sugar Bowl, but had a very stupid moment and completely forgot that the optional theme was buttons!  I'd obviously meant to put them where the card candy is on my card, but only remembered when it was too late - oops.  Image is obviously a Gorjuss Girl, coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are Dovecraft 'back to basics', with core'dinations cardstock.  Sentiment is CC Designs, cut into a corner using circle nesties.


I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
