Cortlynn Is So Special

Hello again!  I have another card to show to you today.  This little cutie comes from Saturated Canary.    She is called Canary Love.  They have a challenge going on - Bling it on.  I saw this image and a couple of things came to mind.  She reminds me of my niece Cortlynn and also Cortlynn is in need of some attention.  

My niece was born mentally challenged and sometimes she gets a bit upset when she thinks she isn't receiving as much attention as the other kids in the house.  If you saw from a few cards ago, her sister is having a birthday and so is my daughter so I wanted to do something nice for Cort and she had told me how much she liked the pop up cards that I had made.  I know she would love to get a card in the mail so I thought I would do this for her.  

Cortlynn has beautiful red hair and she keeps it up in a ponytail just like this image so I made her a red head.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers.  I added a little Stickles by Ranger and Glossy Accents to sparkle her up.  This design comes from Sketch Saturday.

Aren't sketches just fabulous! 

The papers are from Graphic 45 (Kraft), Bazzill, Core' dinations and my Stash 'O Scraps.  The ribbons are Offray and Darice.  I purchased the rainbow ribbon a while back because I thought it was so cute and just haven't had a chance to use it yet.  I liked how it fit with this sketch.  I got the sentiment over at Desert Divas.  The pearls are from Queen & Co.  Finally the floral is from Prima.  

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Saturated Canary #21 - Bling it on
Craft Your Passion #119 - Kraft paper with lace/ribbon
The Corrosive #153 - Sentimentally yours
Really Reasonable Ribbon #52 - Sizzlin' summer colors and ribbon
Simon Says - Anything goes
The Cutie Pie #22 - Glitter and bling
Creative Inspirations #171 - Bingo (Pearls, flowers, blue)

I hope you like my card and I hope Cortlynn likes it too.

Thanks for visiting!
