Papertake Weekly Challenge - Dawnys Sketch #12

I love the simpleness of DawnyP's sketch for this week's Papertake challenge, sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed by all the layering which needs lots of paper matching and other bits and pieces added all over the place. This one I could just get straight down to and actually produce a card in record time!!!

For this card I used:

Background paper - K&Co
Other CS - Stampin Up
Image - Panduro
Sentiment - Studio G
Faber Castell watercolour pencils
Other bits and pieces from stash

I really wish I had coloured her dress with blues and greens rather than pink and purple, I think it would have gone better with the background paper, never mind too late now.
I did some paper pricking (which I find quite theraputic, mindlessly pricking holes into card, bit sad I know) around the main image and also on the three strips, just for a bit of added interest. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment so I know you've been.x

What a lovely, lovely card! I know what you mean about getting bogged down with all the layering ,I did 6 easter cards same format, different colour schemes...I think your purple & pink really bring out the purple in your background, ( I think you made the right choice :o) ) Julie you can see my Easter Cards in my Gallery !
