Loupy Lou Kadoodle Candy and Sketch Saturday #41

Hi folks!!
Lots to share with you today so straight down to it! Hope you like the stamped image on this card. She's my very own design, Loupy Lou and here she is 'Just Posin'. The Craft Barn have a huge 1st birthday Fest on this weekend with demonstrators galore for your inspiration. So wish I could be there but it's my long weekend at work :o( Keep reminding myself - I need to work to buy more crafting goodies - so it's not so bad. Please hop on over to the Kadoodle blog where you could be in with a chance of winning Loupy Lou as she's being offered as candy.
Also, over on Sketch Saturday it's Ria's turn to create the sketch. I'm sure you will agree with me that she has done a wonderful job. Thanks Chicken!! The Challenge is being sponsored by Funky Fairys Papercrafts, more details of the fabulous prize on the blog. Don't forget to check out all the great cards created by my fellow DT.
For this card I used papers by My Mind's Eye. For the stripy panel I used a Fiskars border punch and covered the tiny apertures with red and green coloured papers. I then filled them with glossy accents. The stamped sentiment is by Studio G. I punched, inked, shaped and layered the flowers. I used glue gel to adhere and poked in some small bits of dark green ribbon. The flowers were finished off with a self adhesive pearl. I used my Nestabilities to cut the square and scalloped square. Loupy Lou has been coloured in using my Koi watercolours except for her wings where I used art intitute glitter (flax). Just a little bit of chalk around the image to take away the white glare of card and voila! Finito!
Have a great weekend and thank you all so much for your wonderful and much appreciated comment.
Hugs
