Miranda - SSD - Getting Cricky with K Andrews

Good evening everyone 
I am posting this card for two reasons - I love Getting Cricky with K Andrews stamps and she is having a design team call and I would love to be a part of her team.  I haven't been a guest designer but I would love to show her my stuff... and... 
As you know I have been working on a progressive challenge with Sassy Studios
Today we were able to play around with a Miranda image... so cute... love it
the card was to be CAS - right up my alley!!!
so here is my take on the sketch
and of course the "Chic" stamp is from K Andrews - fashionable friends 
that set has so much on it and I have used it quiet a bit lately
please take a look at a couple of my past posts for more images.  There is also a label finder (I think that is what it is called - teehee) at the bottom of my blog
I have just started with my copics and I have never done red hair yet... 
but I think it turned out ok.

 I would like to also enter my card into the following challenges:
of course Sassy Studio - Miranda 
The scrapbooking queens - royal digi challenge
Incy wincy - ATG
Stampin for the weekend - my style CAS
clearly iStamps - colours

Sending hearts...

Samantha - SSD

good evening everyone
I am playing along with Sassy Studio Designs Sex in the City Challenge... so excited.  The other day I showed you my Charlotte - today we have Samantha... I loved her!!!
 we were asked to use some bling... so she has a bling dress, earring and the gold paper actually has a glitter to it.  You can barely see it in the below picture 
 I used my cricut for the chair and umbrella
K Andrews for the sentiment stamp
CTMH stamps for the sun and water 
 below a close up of the stickles for her dress
 found some more inspiration from the below challenges 
The squirrel and the fox-make it sparkle 
lexi creations -fun in the sun

Added some stickles for some bling!
