Create a Challenge - Card #2

'Sweetie Pie' has been provided by All Dressed Up
This is the 2nd card I made for the current
613 Ave C Challenge  - card #1 can be found HERE.
I tell ya - this "Create Your own Challenge" has been one for me...  a challenge that is.  Just sayin'!  And somehow I managed to make not one, but TWO cards with the required ingredients.
In this version I've included:  #1 DP; #2 a Diecut; #3 Diamond Glaze; #4 Button; #5 Stitching.

Below is a copy of the grid with your choices for the challenge - "Choose 1 - 3 items from every column".  For other details of the Challenge and to see the inspired samples from the Designers, go to 613 Ave C.   There are 3 sponsors, 3 prizes and you can enter 3 projects - so give it a go!
  I layered the DP on dark brown CS for contrast.  A square of a third coordinating DP was glued to the underside of the first layer and then "rolled" over a pen to bring the corner down.  The focal image was printed twice and colored with Copics.  The first copy was used as the base and was cut with a large circle die cut.   From the second copy, I fussy cut the right arm, face and hair, sculpted them and mounted them with foam tape for dimension.
Wild Honey and Dried Marigold Distress Inks were used to add color to the edge of the die cut.  To complete assembly I used waxed dental floss to hand stitch around the circle and to sew down the button holding the corner in place.  Diamond Glaze was applied to her eyes.

The Copics used were:
