I made this card for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz, hosted by our lovely Ginny, who has chosen the OPTIONAL twist of Female Birthday for the team to use.
Our sponsor this time is the fabulous
I chose to use Emmy's Hat - I love this image, so feminine and lovely to colour. This time I coloured her hair and face with copic markers and paper-pieced her hat. I did cheat a bit and coloured the tiny piece of hat-lining by her fingers with a marker as it was too fiddly to cut neatly! Papers are from The Works, ribbon is cut from inside a jumper- you know -those annoying bits of ribbon that poke out round the neckline if you don't remove them! The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed.
Over at Crafty Catz there are some beautiful, feminine cards created by my very talented teamies for your inspiration and enjoyment- stop by and take a look- then why not play along? Remember - Anything Goes- and you could be the lucky winner of some lovely digis.
Thanks for visiting, take care and have a great weekend.
