Very Flat...Very postable!!!!

Post 6.
Todays card is made for someone who requested a flat card to keep the postal charges at bay. It's also for a young lady in her early 20's, so when I saw this Mo Manning image, I thought it was perfect.
As I already mentioned the image is from MosDigitalPencil it's called 'Cara Chatting'.  I've used the ever faithful Promarkers to colour her in, using the papers I chose to influence my colouring choice. 
The papers are called 'Sweet Sprinkles' , a free download from ShabbyPrincess . I matted some vivid orange coredinations card stock onto a 6x6 card, then using a spellbinder nestie, I cut some of the striped paper for an added layer. The dotty ribbons and faux stapled ribbon, (part of the freebie from Shabby Princess) were layered on to the card. The image has been put into a frame (also part of the freebie!!!) using Serif Craft Artist 2. 
The sentiment stamp from Liliofthevalley has been stamped in memento ink onto one of the papers, then the present and balloons coloured then glazed. The little orange ribbon on the sentiment, I recall having cut out of a tee-shirt I bought, added for texture.
The card has been finished off using some of the papers die cut into circles then added to the frame...these have also been glazed to add a little more texture. Then the card has been finished off with a little doodling around the card and paper ribbons.

Finally the inside of the card has another Lili of the Valley sentiment stamped in it and strips of left over paper used to co-ordinate....then of course a little more doodling to complete the card.
Hope you like todays.
Happy Crafting.
