I LOVE being a girl! - Some Odd Girl Challenge

Hi ya everyone,
  I decided to enter my first challenge at Some Odd Girl!  I love their stamps and really wanted to participate in their challenge this week that is all about Scallops!  I bought this cutie Sigh Mae at the Some Odd Girl store.  Isn't she a cutie patootie?
I saw her and realized I had this sentiment that says "I love being a girl" and I knew that the two would go perfect together.  I colored up Mae in my Copics and fussy cut her.
I set her to the side and cut out an oval with my nestable in which I stamped a butterfly background from Inkadinkado and the sentiment (sorry can't remember the stamp company).  I then used this Basic Grey Paper from the Kioshi stack and cut a small square to place on top of my scalloped square that I cut with my Cricut.  I trimmed the Basic Grey paper in some lavender colored ribbon and mounted the whole square on the scallop.  I didn't like the way the ribbons came together so I covered that with some cute brown buttons.
I set Mae off to the side to show off the paper and sentiment.  I then used my Tim Holtz peeling paint and inked the edges of my card.  Lastly, I added a faux stitch with my gelly role pen.  Love this card because of the paper and that ever so dreamy Mae - who just LOVES being a girl!
Hugs

  5. Gorgeous card Melissa! Yes, she is a cutie patootie and you've colored her beautifully. I love BG Kioshi papers ... one of my fave BGs. Love your layout and the "stitching" looks fantastic.
