Lace, Pearls and Buttons at Anything Goes

Hi Girls

Today's new theme over at Anything Goes is to use Lace, Pearls and Buttons...  and this is what I came up with...   I've been dying to use this digi image for a little while...  she is by Sherri Baldy and is one of her Besties... can you believe how gorgeous she is with those big eyes?  And she was so fab to colour.... I've tried the best I could to match her to the paper I'd chosen for her (yes.... unlike my usual habit, I chose the paper BEFORE I did the colouring!)  I used a mix of Copics and Promarkers..  with a Flexmarker thrown in too!  I was really thrilled with how the colouring turned out...  t'was nice to do some green - I need a change every now and again from my lovely pinks!

I used a Spellbinders Rectangle Nestie for her shape...  some lace,  pearls and glitter from my stash... and those ever so teeny-tiny buttons were in my bottomless button drawer.  The paper is by My Minds Eye - Collectables by Jen Allyson.

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge blog HERE to see what my lovely teamies have created...  and don't forget you can get lots of lovely goodies from Lynn at her Craft Den shop online HERE.

Looking forward to seeing your entries..
