One stop craft challenge 18 (no Designer paper)

After a long debate about this challenge i decided to follow one of my sketches which of course ended up being completely different but i also set my goal on orange and brown as this is the latest trend and also so out of character for me. So i thought this card is going to be very boring without any designer papers and very bland but as the night got on my mind started to work overtime so. I used orange and brown plain card, which i used my cuttlebug embossing folders on some and left the other bits plain, i used my rectangle nestability to give a fancy edge to the card, buttons, flowers and strands of fibres and ribbon, then i thought omg what image could possibly go with crazy and bright card then i thought nothing more than one of my dolly mamas. perfect for the job. I used copics, distress inks and le plum pens(until i get my new pro-markers) then i placed a feather in her hat and glazed to make her stand out.
Well i am chuffed to bits with the end result and hope you like too.
