Gabbie's Ready for Mardi Gras

I joined the Faery Ink facebook group a while ago after seeing them around and bought myself a few digis with my crafting money this month, so I could finally join in with this group and their challenges. You all know I love a challenge and cute digis are always a bonus too!

This card is for Faery Ink's Challenge #5 Mardi Gras, The Sketchy Challenges #82 to use the sketch below and a birthday theme, My Time To Craft's Challenge #274 to use stripes and for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Anything Goes (I didn't do this twist this week!).

Here's the sketch from Sketchy Challenges...

And here's my card... I totally used the wrong colours for her dress so several layers later and it kind of looks ok! Couldn't find my feathers either! I have had to hide them from my cat as she just eats them, but I have no idea where I have hidden them! LOL
