hAnglar & stAnglar Sailor Kid

I have made this card for my oldest Daughter's birthday and thought I could enter it into these challenges:

Craft Mad and Loving It - follow a sketchie with a theme to use corrugated card (punched hearts)
Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge Blog - Theme is 'anything goes with an option of adding lace'
Top Tip Tuesday - Theme is 'Wrap it up in ribbon'
One Stop Craft Challenge - theme is 'Texture' (I have used lace, ribbon, glitter on my flowers, corrugated card for my punched hearts)
Cute Card Thursday - theme is 'Embellish it'
Crafts and Me Challenge - theme is 'Punch it out'
Flutter By Wednesday - theme is 'Open' (must show a fairy, butterfly or angel)
Charisma Cardz Challenge - theme is 'Something that flies' (my butterfly)

The papers are Basic Grey - Porcelain.

I coloured the hAnglar & stAnglar Sailor Kid image with watercolour pencils and Sansador. This is the first time I have used these pencils. I am happy with the result, with a little more practise I think I have found the perfect medium.

I have used a Martha Stewart border punch to edge the red card.

The hearts are a Martha Stewart punch also.

I have punched a doo-hickey die from red card and placed a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts to the front, blinged with glitter.

The crocheted doily, ribbon, butterfly and gems are from my stash.

The sentiment is a Spellbinders banner die,stamped with a magazine freebie.
