Kraft paper challenge

The challenge this week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog is to use Kraft coloured cardstock on our cards.  I'm not that fond of Kraft coloured cardstock, so this challenge was difficult for me.

Here's what I came up with:

This gorgeous wee girl is called Donna from Tiddly Inks  and I think she was the first Donna image that Christy drew.  I have mounted her on Kraft cardstock and added tiny purple staples to the framing and Hero Hues pearls.  The design papers are from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  Donna is coloured with copics (details below) and I have added glossy accents to her umbrella and her boots.  I really love the Donna and Belinda characters from Tiddly Inks... they are so sweet.  The sentiment is another one from the super versatile Sonny Honeycloud - Sonny Says set from Pollycraft.

Here are the copics I used:

Enjoy your Saturday evening!
