Another Sketch Challenge

After a bit of a struggle last week with the sketch challenge from Pixie Dust Studio, I decided I just had to try this one from Dutch Dare Card Challenges .

As soon as I saw it I got an idea...isn't it funny how that happens sometimes.  I wanted to use this cute digi from Doodle Pantry.  The image,  hat papers, and sentiment are from there,  they are the first pre-colored images I have ever purchased. 

I turned the sketch to accomate my image.  I layered the hat paper on blue cardstock.  I used a red for the matting on the image; and cut it with a Spellbinders.  I inked everything with Cat's Eye Chalk ink in Burnt Sienna.  Added a little rafia to keep that rustic feel.

On the image I printed out two copies.  I cut the second one apart to create dimension.  I pop dotted the pieces onto the first.  Then I painted the pop dotted pieces with Crystal Effects. 

I know exactly who this card is going to go to....
