Pretty Vintage

Hello lovely people,

Oh dear, was that a whole week since I posted anything?!  I've had a few days off work which was fabulous but they flew by as well!
So, I'm here with a really quick post to share a little card I made for a lovely blogging friend.  For this one I wanted to avoid over-embellishment and pink... well, I think I managed a clean look but there is a teeny bit of pink ;-)

This image is one of my faves to colour up and I love all the little patchwork bits on her dress :-)

Card recipe;
DP: Vintage autumn basics - Maja Design (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Tag: Sentiment tags - LOTV
Heart: Memory Box die

Copic colours;
Skin: E000/00/21/11/04 & R20
Hair: E43/44/47
Dress / bag: BG90/93/96 & BG70/72/75 & RV93/95/99
Shoes: W3/5/7
Sockes: W00/1/3
Ground: W00/0/1/2/3

I may have mentioned how much I love Maja and Pion Design papers right?  Yeah, as if you couldn't tell from my blog!  So I just have to confess that earlier today I had a HUGE splurge on these yummy papers at Live and Love Crafts... I only popped in to look at the new Christmas papers - oops!  They do have 10% off on everything though until the end of August so maybe you need to head over there too?!

Thank you so much for popping in and for your lovely comments - I love to read them :-)


Challenges I am playing along with;
1.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
2.  Divas by Design (happy birthday)
