Hi, start of a new week, hope everyone had a great weekend. Weather's been good here so I spent a lot of time in the garden, enjoying the sunshine! I did have a bit of a play though, colouring in this beauty, Marilyn,  this month's lovely freebie from The East Wind. I decided to make her a redhead instead of a blond but kept her dress white (it's very shimmery IRL -I used wink of Stella which doesn't show in the photo), then fussy cut the image an d mounted onto a glittering black star, die cut more stars from glitter paper and mounted the whole lot on a black circle-step card base. I added a few tiny gems for even more sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today.
