Mojo 69 - Sketch Challenge - Cuddly Buddly's Birthday Emmy

I made this card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This is Mojo challenge #69. The challenge is to follow the sketch below for the layout of your creation. I decided to challenge myself a bit further and use a type of image I'm not use to working with. My usual style has been artsy and Asian theme. Since I started this blog I have been trying many different styles, colors, layouts etc. I have found that yes, I can do other things! I usually don't do cutesy for the exception of the House Mouse line but I ventured out of my box and tried one of the Magnolia images a week ago and was quite pleased with the results. Going a little further with the cutesy theme, I chose to use an image for this challenge that was given to me by my friend Rosette (thanks!). This is Birthday Emmy from the Giggles Gang by Cuddly Buddly. I think she makes a cute and adorable birthday card!

Supplies Used:
All cardstock: Bazzil Basics
Printed Paper: Purchased from Hobby Lobby
Circles: Cut using Spellbinder's Nestabilities
Embossing: Made with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Rhinestones: Hero Arts Gems
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol
Don't forget to check out the other fabulous creations over at Mojo Monday. Considering joining in on the challenge and consider challenging yourself into trying a new style! You might find out you like trying something new!
