Another Birthday Card

It's another crafty weekend for me!  My darling Daughter had a birthday party today, she insisted that she needed a funky card for her friend Mindy so here is what I came up with.  I hope she will like it!  I based this card design on the sketch at Cute Card Thursday, I'll link the challenge blog at the bottom of my post.

The image is one of my favourites from Kenny K, the stamp is called Troublemaker but really she looks far too sweet to be much of a troublemaker...

I printed the image on Cryogen White Iridescent cardstock.  I used a coffee mug as a template for my circle... I know, not very high tech of me but it works.  Here are the colours I used on her;

Skin: E00, E21 & R20
Hair: E51, E33 & E35 (same combo as Faith in previous post but much different results using more of the darker shades)
Hoody: E08, YR07 & YR02
Shirt: YG03 & YG11
Jeans: B24, B23 & B32
Shoes: E08, YR07, YR02, E33 & E35
Ice Cream cone: E35, E37 & E47

I layered the stamped image (inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink) on a doily (cut up to a shadow of it's former self) and then a hand cut another circle around that, it's not perfect, but not so bad... would you have known if I didn't tell you it was freehanded?  The random dots on the pattern paper are very forgiving! 

The papers are from Scribble Scrabble, the flowers are Prima solid coordinates Jack N Jill & the pleated ribbon is Pink Paisly, the other small ribbon and Black gem flower centers are from my stash, not sure the brands though.

I intend to submit this card in a few challenges
