Just Sitting Here!

This card is for this week's sketch challenge on SCS. This week we were instructed to make our cards tall, to keep the oval that was on the sketch and the front flap had to be folded back towards to front of the card to reveal the inside of the card on the right side.

My card is 22cm tall (approx 9 inches), I used some DP I got today while at a craft show ... they didn't have much there but I was glad I was able to get the DP. Once I had folded back my right side of the front of the card I attached another piece of card over it as I didn't like the same color pink on the flap and the inside of the card. I also attached pink brads on the flap to take off the plainness. I added ribbon to the bottom of the card and then adhered the flap to the card.

I cut my ovals with my oval nestabilities, the girl is stamped on white card, cut out and then attached onto the ovals so her legs dangle over the edge of the oval, this was then attached to the card with foam tape.

I also added the flower to the top left side of the card .... I remembered I had a sentiment that had the word "sittin' " in it so I also stamped that onto my card ... I think it goes well with the image.

Recipe:
Stamps: Girl - Magnolia Stamps; Sentiment - Impression Obsession
Paper: White; Pretty In Pink & Ruby Red - SU; DP - Fancy Pants Designs
Other: Black Ink; Pink Grosgrain Ribbon; Pink Flowers; Pink Brads; Oval Nestabilities; Foam Tape
