Sassy Skater

Hey everyone,
I have a card to share with you today! Hurrah!

This little offering is for my niece!
As soon as I saw the image I knew it was for her!
She's a bit of an action girl! So it suits her down to the ground!
The colours I have used are her favourites!
I used a 5"x5" square card base made from a sheet of A4 card.
I distressed the edges of the design papers & added two panels
which were wrapped with bakers twine!

The image is Sassy Skater & she's coloured with promarkers!
She's a bit of a Tom Boy but still likes to look good!
I distressed around the edges of the image & the matt.
I also attempted to add some faux stitching up the sides with a 
Sakura Souffle Pen & a metal ruler but as you can see, it wasn't my best effort!
The Sentiment was generated on my PC.
I added some brads for a bit of detail.

I decorated the inside of the card to go with the outside.
The papers I have used are from the Paper Cellar Celebrations Collection

I added a butterfly charm as I just felt it needed another little something.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
