GCC0203 - Thanks You're Sweet

Hello everyone! It's the big game this weekend. I always love going to someone's house or having the Superbowl get-together at my house. This year, my friend Pamela is in town so we are had the get-together at her son's place.

It's a new challenge over at the Outlaws. This week, the theme is Thanks. We have two sponsors this week: Inky Impressions and Fred She Said. I was on the Inky Impressions team. The image used is LiLi with Berries.

Hope you come on over the Outlawz to play along.

I did a lot of cutting for this one. I paperpieced her entire outfit except the white, her socks, and the bows in her hair. I also fussy-cut the image out. I used copics and American Craft alcohol markers for the rest. I have so few markers, I have only been making blonde girls. I seem to have a lot of colors that work for blonde. I will probably send this card to my grandma as a thank you for my Christmas present.

I used this card off Pinterest as my inspiration.
