Something a bit different...

Afternoon everyone, well I have been a very busy bee today ad plan to be just as busy tonight. Once the kids are in bed i'm planning a(nother) crafting session!  and I cant wait! 

This is one of the cards I made today, isnt she adorable! Its a decoupage that was given to me from a friend, I just had to have her when i saw her, so adorable! It reminds me of my sister when she was little.  She is now 21, about to move out of home and in her final year of training to be a dance teacher, i'm so excited for her!


I mounted the decoupage onto lilac bazzill stock and onto cream, I used my gelly roll pens around the edge so it stood out.  I also mounted this onto the card using foam pads, just to add more detail! The border at the top was punched using an x-cut border punch and I added pearls in the centre of the flowers.  the ribbon is from my stash, and for once in my crafting days, I remembered to wrap my ribbon round the border rather than round the card! 


Here is a close up of this gorgeous little one! I also used my pens on her to make certain elements stand out a bit more,  I coloured her shoes, ribbons and headband, i also went round the creases of her dress to make it look like light was bouncing off her. 


Well I hope you like her! I would love to hear what you think if you have time please feel free to leave a comment! 

I would like to enter her into the following challenges;
