Pollycraft design team call

Pollycraft is holding a design team call with a slight twist. Instead of just submitting samples of one's work, Paula has two adorable free images and challenged anyone interested to show their stuff. The images are available for anyone whether applying for the design team or not so you MUST check them out. This is my first submission using Codi Stylin'.

I wanted to use an unexpected colour palette for this card. Codi is so sweet looking, but I just know she has some attitude (check out the t-shirt). I decided on papers from the Basic Grey June Bug collection. The flowers are all fussy-cut from a pattened paper in the set. The paper ribbon is also part of a larger pattern. You absolutely can't tell in the photo but my favourite part of this card is the "lip gloss" (glossy accents added to the lips).

In addition to the Pollycraft DT challenge, I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For anyone interested in the details, here are the products used:
  • Basic Grey, June Bug patterned papers
  • glossy accents
  • unknown cream cardstock
  • Copic markers (see colours below)

Thanks for looking and wish me luck in the Design Team submission. The competition is extremely stiff so I don't expect to be selected but it's worth a try!
