Card #15 - Kraftin' Kimmie and Sweet Sketch Wednesday

So while I had all my orange scraps out for this challenge:

and all my card making stuff out for World Card Making Day, I decided to make another card. This one features Andrea Acorn from Kraftin' Kimmie, and I paper pieced her skirt for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie challenge. I also used this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
I love the mix of My Mind's Eye papers and stamps on this card, but I had a really hard time with the Copics on her hair and cape. I'm thinking I need to get some more instruction in those areas, but all in all I'm pleased with how this one turned out.

Hopefully this will serve as a reminder to get your orange projects in this month at Creative Accents Challenges! And if you missed our all-Canadian blog hop for World Card Making Day, then here's a reminder to make a comment on this post (and become a follower) so you can have a chance for my BLOG CANDY!!! 25 smackeroos to spend as you please at this store:
