OMG where has the last week gone?

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted! My feet haven't touched the ground, nothing exciting though believe me..... School finished on Wednesday and I had hoped things would slow down after that! I spent Thursday and Friday in work, Saturday clearing up the house and all day Sunday stripping wallpaper in the hall stairs and landing. I had a well earned day off yesterday, I was even too tired to make a card, until the evening, when I thought it was time I caught up with a few challenges.

I am entering this card for 2 challenges:-
- Passion for Promarkers - colours are Rose Pink and Lime Green
- Friday Sketchers - a great sketch to work with, one I will use again I am sure.

I used Goth Girl from Gorjuss Giirls set 2, but covered the skull & crossbones hairslide with a flower brad. The papers are from a HOTP citrus pad that I've had for ages, I thought the colours matched well. The flower made from scraps of paper using SU! 5 petal flower punch, the flower centre is a glue dot covered with micro beads. The pink layer has been stamped with Kelly Pancinni border stamp and versamark ink, you can just about see it, then run through Swiss Dots CB embossing folder. Ribbon is fron stash, swirls cut from off cuts of card. Finished off with 3 sticky gems which I thought picked out the colours of the card.

Am off to get a shower now, going into work today - last day hopefully until September :-) Hope to catch up on blog hopping and challenges over the next few days.

You have been busy!
I love your card - this girl is so cute (but I don't like the skull - a flower is so much prettier for her).
Have a great week.
