One for the girls

New Year, new challenge and some lovely new teamies! It's all happening at Southern Girls Challenge! Just click here if you don't want to miss out on the fun! The theme this fortnight is 'one for the girls' -so a lovely easy one to start the year! We have two wonderful sponsors All Dressed Up and Ppinkydolls so there are some gorgeous prizes on offer for our lucky winners.
For my card I used the adorable For You image from All Dressed Up (thank you!). I printed her onto white card, coloured her with copics then cut the bottom edge of the white card with a curved edge die, faux stitching around the edges. This image is so sweet I wanted to keep the design very simple, so after matting onto the dp I added a little die cut heart banner and a flower (die cut with a new Crealies flower die)...and that's about it!
As I already mentioned we do have some lovely and talented new teamies starting today...and as always there is loads of fabulous inspiration to be seen on the Challenge Blog, both from the new girls and the 'old faithfuls'!! so why not pop over for a look!
Thanks for visiting and hope you have a great day!

Ooh this is lovely Chris. I love the curving die at the bottom and enjoying the fresh colours. I do much better if I feel I'm being held accountable (so feel free to check on me throughout the year!). Last year's spending was the lowest ever so it clearly works! Hugs xx
