Hi all, it's been a good day so far, the sun is shining, it's Jess' 2nd birthday and James' 24th, I also won the challenges at Come and Get it Challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge, and we are having roast chicken and veggies with stuffing for dinner.
I finished this card off this morning, I have seen these images around in blogland for awhile now but after seeing Aussie Annie's blog and the loveliness that she had created using some of these image I finally went and treated my self to one or two maybe it was 3, lol.
I really enjoyed colouring her with Graph It Markers and Copics for the face, I mounted her onto black card, I found some lovely orange linen effect card and used that to mount the papers onto, the papers are a mix, have no clue whose they are, had them for quite awhile now, I then punched out a couple of butterflies added some burlap and gingham ribbon and a bow.  Finally I added 3 flowers
Closer look at the image 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting me today hope you like my card, please feel free to stay awhile and check out my other posts.
