An economical card...

Here's a quick card I made for one of my granddaughter's friends. The papers are left over from a long ago scrapbooking class, the ribbon is recycled from a box of chocs and the flowers are punched. I drew the image, coloured her with copics and paper pieced her dress, how's that for economical!
Thanks for visiting.

  6. Wow Chris, you really drew her. You should start your own line of Digi stamps - such a talent.
    You may have been economical with your design but it is certainly not economical with gorgeousness factor.
    Enjoy the rest of your week.
