New Hat.......... new card...

Hi Girls

Well, it's been a busy Saturday here .... I've managed to wash the car, trim a shrub, change the bed and wash the sheets, AND make a card!  I've still got to make a lasagne before we eat too!

I've got to say, I'm getting into these LOTV images.... I absolutely adore colouring them.  I sit in my own world....  not aware of anything going on around me....  while I get her dress JUST right!  Anyone identify with that? hehe

Onto the materials used:
  • Trusty pens (obviously!)
  • Bazzill BP
  • Basic Grey Indian Summer DP - distresssed edges with scissors
  • LOTV New Hat Image
  • Nesties for circle and scalloped circle
  • Marianne Creatables corner die (coloured through with brown while die attached)
  • Marianne creatables swirl
  • Lace from stash
  • Pearl Gems
  • Pearl Bad
  • Seam Binding from Ribbon Girl
  • Charm from ebay and chain from stash
  • Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • MS branch punch
  • Sentiment was handwritten - inspired by Pretty Pressings blog
I used a sakura glitter pen for the mirror and glossy accents for the bag..... but otherwise girls........ can you believe it?  NOT a BIT of glitter!!  (Don't think I could have fitted any on there anyway...... )

The inside is decorated with the same Basic Grey paper...
Hope you like - your comments mean a lot to me so please say hello..  and a great big thank you to all that have commented up to now and spurred me on!
