my second card features one of the images listed above, she is called Busy Lizzie, I have coloured her with graph It Markers and Copics, I doodled the frame then mounted her onto black card stock, the papers are from Bearly Mine I mounted them onto black card, I added some wide ribbon then added some gingham ribbon, I also added a double bow, pearlescent roses, pearl flower gems and sentiment.
