Are you this awesome in a velvet skirt?

My first order of MFT stamps arrived today! Very exciting! So...I decided to create this card for the MFT Sketch Challenge (MFTSC60) that runs until tonight at midnight. My Wübē paper was still out and since I like the colours for the MFT's Who's That Girl Challenge (MFTWTG14) so much, part of my work was already done. I added green to the blue, brown and white combination.

Where's the velvet?--I stamped the image on green patterned paper and white card stock, cut out the sofa and skirt pieces, then added white flock to the skirt for texture. The rest of my E-Girl is coloured in copics. I used my Fiskars scalloped edge punch and found that the holes were perfect for these matte finish brads that tie in with the white skirt and sentiment panel. I haven't used my slit punch for awhile, so I thought it was time--it was always a favourite. I ran the soft sky panel through my cuttlebug 'circles and spots' (not sure what the name is) embossing folder. The rest is all layers of blue bayou, chocolate chip and the Bohemia lime green paper from MME.

Another stunner! Green adds a really nice twist to the original combo. Is she emailing her friend in Boston? :)
