OCC card sketch

Happy Sunday everyone. I just found this card challenge site--- OCC this morning--- I was in the middle of making a thank you card from our little one to her Grandmom and thought it was perfect for the sketch. I hope she like's it.
I used Tim Holtz' rubber stamps, Distress Crackle paint and inks to create the background. I also stamped on top of the crackle with the little girl to give her that really aged look and colored her in with nibs. Stamped onto the paper with the mesh stamp and then added the white crackle paint over top of that to mute it some. Then took worn lipstick ink and did the direct to paper method and wiped it off. Flowers are from Prima, ribbon from Rebecca Sower and the rhinestones and twine are unknown.
Here are the other two cards I made using the sketch from the Pink Elephant. I really had alot of fun with this sketch..
Well we are off today to my MIL's house for her BBQ/picnic. It'll be such a blast I can't wait. Have a great sunny Sunday....hugs from Charm City
