Some Odd Girl Challenge

Welcome to my first Some Odd Girl Challenge.  I am new to Some Odd Girl Stamps.  I've been broadening my horizons in attempt to keep the creativity going.  This is the 12th card I've sent to my Dad in the hospital in as many days.  It's difficult to make a card every day to send to the same person just to keep his spirits up.

Rambling aside, Some Odd Girl has challenged us with the following sketch:

Here is my take on the card:

Once I got the card done, I realized it was *way* to girly to send to my 61 year-old veteran, Harley riding, Daddy.  So, I sent him a card from the stash and mailed this one on to a very special friend.

I used Some Odd Girl's Sigh Mae digi and colored using Copics.

Hair: Y28, Y26, and Y32.
Dress/Shoes: BV04, BV01, BV00
Socks: B02, B00, B000, E000
Skin: E11, E00, E000
Eyes: BG18, BG15, BG13

I then accented with my beloved Stickles, although you can't really tell from the photo.
Socks: Frosted Lace on E000.
Hair: Yellow on lines
Dress: Purple around edge

I used Nestabilities and printed the sentiment off of my PC onto Papertrey Ink's white cardstock. The purple cardstock is Recollections from Michaels.  Honestly, I have no clue where I got the purple bling hearts.  They were in my embellishments bin and I only had three left...

The card base is Papertrey Ink's white cardstock.  The patter paper is Little Yellow Bicycle Loose Leaf and Blue bubbles (1 sheet, double sided).

The ribbon is Celebrate It Holiday wired edge ribbon (I removed the wire prior to adhering it to the card.)  I stuck the card together using a combination of Tombow tape roller (who recently changed their tape...and I don't like it), and glue dots.

Anywhose, I think that covers it all.  I really enjoyed by first SOGgy.  I've stalked the blog for awhile, but never jumped on board.  Yay for the SOG Hop.  =o )

Thanks for looking!
