I Love This Card ...

Hi Everyone - hope you are having a wonderful week - nearly the weekend ... yay!!

My niece is soon to be 13, and I love the card I have made for her!

Honestly, the photo doesn't do it justice - the colours do all match better irl than the photo shows! The image is a digi from Pollycrafts, called Evangeline Retro - isn't she pretty? - looks a little like my niece actually. I have printed the image twice, once onto the dp so that I could paper piece her dress - I love paper piecing for clothes (much easier than colouring!!). I'm really sorry, I can't remember what the paper is - it's been put at the back of the cupboard again and I can't be bothered to fish everything out at the moment - I'll update this post to name them when I can. The pearlescent card is from Create and Craft - it is gorgeous irl and I haven't got much left :(. The lace was part of the first candy I ever won from Tab, and this is the first time I've used it - I threaded some narrow ribbon through it. The pink flowers started off cream, and I've coloured them with promarkers.

I'm entering this card in two challenges:

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge
A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes

I do have some more cards to show you, but I'll leave that til tomorrow.

Love, Andrea xx
