This Genie has attitude!

Hi there, its a beautiful sunny morning here in my little corner of the UK and after a really stressful weekend i've booked a day off work. I'm planning a little gardening and lots of crafting but first I wanted to share this card made another fab image from Digi's With Attitude!
She is called 'Grumpy Gretchen -Genie' and you can find her here

I've coloured Gretchen with promarkers, its the first time I've really tried darker skin tones and I'm pretty pleased with the result (I used walnut, cinnamon, cocoa and tan). The corner stamps are from Chocolate Baroque  and I've matted the image on some red and black card punched with a MS doiley lace punch. The bp is from one of my favourite craft cds, its called Decadent Brocade by Artylicious and you can find it at Chocolate Baroque too.. I've edged the bp and the black mat with a gold krylon pen and added some black and gold ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Anita B: Anything goes
Crafty Ho's: Sketch or use a rubber stamp with a digi stamp (I've used rubber and digi stamps)
Digital Tuesday: Little Women
Kenny K: Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time: Make it Sassy
Paperplay: Photo Inspiration
Sugar Creek Hollow: Monochromatic

Thanks for calling by today, I'm going to do battle with the dandelions now as the garden is full of them at the minute. Why is it weeds seem to grow faster than plants?
