Funky Sassy Girl

Well our lovely warm weather has officially taken a hike and it is now cold here.  We have one of those programmable thermostats set to lower the temperature during the day, automatically come back up around supper and then go down again during the night.  It feels so cold and damp today that I had to override it and make the furnace come on.  One good thing about a day like this is that it makes you want to craft all day.

The challenge this week over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is to use one of Cheryl's girl images with some ribbon.  I decided that I would take a different approach to this card compared to some of the ones I have done in the past and forget about bows and other girlie embellishments but go a little funky and mod.  I hope you like it!

The image is called Gentle Friends and has been coloured using a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The paper is from Basic Grey and the card stock is Recollections (Michaels) and Domtar (ordered in from my local printer).  Other supplies used:  Ribbons (Costco & Fabricland) and Buttons (Michaels).
