It's 2 post Wednesday again this week and here's my 2nd DT card.  I totally love this image and as per my post title, she cracks me up pmsl.  Honestly, I chuckle every time I see her. It's challenge #189 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and our theme this week is to use Orange & Brown.  Our sponsor this week is the 'oh so humorous' Dr. DIGI. The doc is offering 5 digi's to our winner, and I'd like to introduce you to Polly Dent.

My papers are from Basic Grey's 'Konnichiwa' and MME's 'Fine and Dandy Boy'.  It's very rare that I use papers from different pads as I can never seem to match them, but these worked a treat.  The swirl is a Memory Box die.  Edge punch is from EK Success and the sentiment is one of my own.  I drew the ground bit myself as another way of grounding the image.  She's coloured of course, with my Promarkers and Tria's but I paper pieced her top and skirt and then coloured over them a bit.  The shading around the edge is a pans pastel and then I just added a bit of ribbon and 3 pearls from my stash.

Entering into:
DIE CUTTING DIVA'S #136 - Use brown.
ADDICTED TO STAMPS AND MORE #66 - Anything goes.
CRAFTY CREATIONS #243 - 1, 2, 3.
CREATIVE MOMENTS #27 - Anything goes/Autumn
DIVA'S BY DESIGN - 3 or more layers.
RHEDD AND ROSIE #17 - Colours of Autumn.
LAWNSCAPING #67 - Use patterned papers.
MAKE IT MONDAY #161 - Anything goes.

Brilliant card, love your colouring. Dr Digi stamps ROCK! This one reminds me of me a few years ago (I was 30something) and had to borrow my Mum's trolley to get shopping and school stuff home. Got some very strange looks! Perhaps I should've worn a blue rinse wig?! lol
Thanks for joining us at Rhedd & Rosies.
