Thank you card no 1 for DT project at PPCC blog 439

Emma in her cool cap is the name of this delightful image from Fred She Said Designs!! FSSD is the prize sponsor for the #439th weekly challenge for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!!

Card #1=  

PPCC's ID Badge and link for #439

FSSD's ID Badge (their link and info details about prize(s) will be found on #439 PPCC blog post)

and editing in the 2nd prize sponsor for #439--SheepSki Designs (details on the PPCC post)

Design notes for the thanks for birthday gifts card:

a. this is a 1 layer card not a traditional folded card base
b. the digi came colored --however I added yellow colored pencil to the hat, shorts, socks and pink ruffled under trim plus the diagonal stripes on her shirt
c. I did step b because there are some challenge blogs that will not accept pre-colored digital images. I think if you see the original, you will notice that I've added enough to make it coordinate with my patterned papers and puffy alpha stickers.
d. the 2 patterned papers are not quite half sheets (originals = 6" square) with the blue cardstock base are from partial pads/sets that I've been trying to 'annihilate' since mid-June!!!!
e. all paper edges have been inked black

More scanned and/or cropped photos:

Maybe I should have named this Rainbow Brite Emma? She's a super sweet darling little gal that loves color!!!...a girl after my own heart!
