I created this card today using Pippi from CC Designs. 

The sketch I used is from this week's challenge at There She Goes Clear Stamps.  I started
with an orange card base. I cut a piece of cream card stock slightly smaller than the base.  I cut a piece of brown dotted patterned paper and added it to the bottom of the card. I cut a piece of green card stock and punched it using an eyelet lace border punch and added it across the top of the card.  I punched a piece of cream card stock using the same eyelet lace border punch.  Then I cut two strips out of it and added it to the green card stock.  I cut a strip of green card stock and backed it in orange card stock, added a piece of orange ribbon and added it across the center of the card.  Then I added a bow made out of the same orange ribbon.

I colored the face, hand and hair of the image.  I stamped the image out again on the orange card stock and the brown patterned paper.  I paper pieced on the costume onto the image.  I added diamond stickles to the wings.
