Girly Girl?

Girly Girl? - It is time for another challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity and Alphabet Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is to laugh. When I looked at this image, I just knew that I wanted to make a girly card for a girl who was anything but girly. 

I had one little girl in my Sunday School class, who would arrive each Sunday in the most delicate dresses, complete with white gloves. And each Sunday she would be wrestling with the boys. Her appearance was such a contradiction in her actions and it would just crack me up.

So here is my little "princess" in all her glory, covered in mud. I have color Saturated Canary's "Nothing in my hands" image with Copics. I cut her with a SB die. 

DP is Authentique's Classique and Pretty.

The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is to use lace. I had some black lace in my stash to use. I placed it in the middle of a border cut with a MS punch. The vine swirl is CL. The flowers are HC and I used Worn Lipstick distress inks in the centers, then finished the flowers off with a black pearl pen.

My sentiment is hand written, then punched with SU punches.
