Shake Your Tail Feathers ~

Hey all!  I've been working my fingers to the bone today stamping up a mess of cards!  I love when the mojo is flowing!  Today I have a new {to me} Kraftin' Kimmie stamp for you - Ms. Vivienne.
She's a saucy little thing, isn't she?  I colored her up with Copics and her feathers with color pencils.  Her beads, shoes, belt and parts of the feathers have some of the Spica pens added for a little glitter and fun!  She has some nice purple eyeshadow and I drew in an iris and eyelashes for her.  I have a confession...I actually had her all colored up, went to add eyelashes and totally jacked up her face!  I had to color another head and cut it out to paste on top of this one!  lol 
I couldn't get a bow to lay the way I wanted it to, so I just tied a knot with another piece of ribbon in there for a bit more flair.  The sentiment was created from a long PTI sentiment and the flourish is just part of another stamp from Simply Stationery {I had to have that set and have never really used it!}. 
The inside is finished off with more of the Kaisercraft paper and one of the sentiments that come with her - Shake Your Tailfeathers!  I'm keeping this short and sweet so that I can get it in for a couple of challenge deadlines.  Here are the challenges that she qualifies for:
I went a little nuts today on challenge cards, so I'll have posts on Saturday and Sunday!  Hope you're all having a great start to your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by   :o) lyss
