No DSP...what the??

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. It's cold and wet here again...no suprise really given were in the mountains and it's the middle of winter:) I used to hate winter, stopped me from getting out and about and doing things. The idea of staying at home, inside all day used to drive me crazy. Now I look forward to it! The rest of the week is so busy it's nice to just chill out and enjoy some time at home.
So today I decided to try the No DSP challenge at Lil Lolita Botique and if ever there was a card that was destined to fail it was this one!! So many mistakes in the making of this card, its not funny. Accidently used the wrong copic on her hair (she started out a blonde), wrong distress ink on the first scroll I made, cut the pink too small etc etc. I was ready to give up but persavered and got there in the end, just took a little longer than I expected!!

For my card I used Ivy and created my own background paper using Papertrey's Guide Lines stamps.  It may have taken a while, but I'm pleased it turned out ok in the end.

Stamps - 'Ivy' from Lil Lolita Range at Tickled Pink, Guide Lines Two and Giga Guide Lines from Papertrey Ink. 
Inks - SU Pink Pirouette. 
Copics - Hair E35, 25,29, Clothes C9,7,5,3, R85,83,81, Skin E000,00 Eyes E40, B24, R20. Accessories - Kaiser bling, SU pearls, assorted flowers and ribbon. 
Swirl cut with Cricut Storybook cartridge.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, 
thanks for stopping by
