Party Girl!


I've been hibernating today, would have blown you away Mary Poppins style on the West Coast of Scotland.

It did give me a chance to make the following card though - so there is a plus to horrid weather :o)

The colours aren't as vibrant as they are IRL. The stamped image is Robyn from Ladybug Crafts Ink. She's having a wee rake through the dressing up box by the looks of things. She is coloured with Promarkers and I did a wee bit of layering on the image as I wanted to add a frilly underskirt with some organza ribbon that I got a while ago from The Ribbon Box at one of my trips to the SECC in Glasgow. The papers are Pretty Please Spring Papers from MME and card is from stash.

You can see the frilly underskirt better in this picture (or petticoat - for those of you who are wondering what I'm talking about). I used some pearly beads for her necklace and outlined the image with some pink peel-offs that I've had for yonks (I'm not a big peel-off fan, but they have their uses).

I also used the ribbon to trim the card as you can see from the above photos. The shoe brads are from Woodware. I punched the paper with my Martha Stewart punch and added some bling to the wee puched out circles, and also trimmed the bottom of the papers again with the pink peel-offs.

I'd like to enter the above card in the following challenges:

Lily of the Valley - Challenge and Blog Hop

Any comments are greatly appreciated :o)
