Stampin for the Weekend sketch challenge

I made this card for the Stampin' for the Weekend sketch challenge There are two sketches to chose from, I chose the second created by Donna. Check them out and play along, there are prizes to be won.

I am not sure if I like this card or not. I love the dotted paper and I love the striped paper, each separately with the little girl from Hanglar & Stanglar, but not so sure I like them together. But it is done now.
Copics used:
Hair - E13, E15
Face - E000, E00, E02, R20
Shirt - R21, R24
Flower - YR21, YR14, YR18
Stem - G21
Pants & Bow - B21, B00
Shoes - E11, E15

I airbrushed the flowers to match and then brushed Angel Wings Shimmerz on them as well as the leaves for some extra bling. I used white and blue Glaze pens for the extra dots. The saying is from Hero Arts, die cut with my Spellbinders Square Nestabilities. Oh, and I added a metal dragonfly for some extra interest.

I think the dots and striped paper go well together, Sandy. Love the colors you used, too. The airbrushed flowers are very pretty.

I love the papers together along with the border punch and the air brushed flowers. All your elements give the card and the little girl a feminine touch. A+ is your mark for this one!!!

So where did you get this stamp Sandy? Since the website isn't telling any US place to buy? I just don't understand why the US stamp makers can't manufacture something as darned cute as the Europeans are doing lately. Makes stuff like SU and Hero Arts like childish now.

What a beautiful card Sandy, and I think those papers go extremely well together so don't worry about it, and your coloring is amazing on the Hanglar girl, and I like how you've airbrushed your flowers, they do like nice and sparkly close up. You've really done a super job using my sketch.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a wonderful day.

Hiya,
This is brilliant I really like it and I do think the papers work they are a strong contrast but I don't think that is a bad thing as it makes the card really pop :)
Thank you for joining us at stampin' for the weekend and good luck.
