A woman's work is never done!!!!

So we just have to fit it in around our crafting as best we can!!!!
Seriously folks, I thought the post title summed up this little image I have used from Stitchy Stamps called Chores which you can purchase at the Digital Ink Co store for $3.00
Now I based my card on the sketch over at Sketch Saturday (which I have used before and I liked it so much I decided to use it again!)
First off I coloured her in using ordinary pencils and my La Plume markers (thanks Jude!!)  I used pearlescent chalk around the edge of the image to soften it. 
I layered this onto an old disused CD (not a craft one obviously!!)  I added a ribbon hanger to the CD and added a sentiment bottom left. 
I added a handmade flower from some peel offs stuck to red paper and two other smaller flowers from my stash. 
Instead of using paper or strips of ribbon for the three little lines I decided to use two small bows and 1 peg in the appropriate colours.  The pale lavendar DP is from a Hot off the Press paper pad called Amethyst and the checkerboard red paper is from a Crafter's Companion CD (I think - printed it off ages ago and now can't remember which CD it's from).


So the challenges I will enter this card into are:
Sketch Saturday - sketch as shown above
Play Date Cafe - Red/Lavender and Silver
Saturday Spotlight - Around the House - Use an everyday household item (not a craft item)
Digital Tuesday - All things girly (well it is called A Woman's work!!!)
I'd love to know what you all think of this card my friends so please if you pop in for a look see please leave me a comment.
Huge hugs to you all.
