Getting Krafty over at Southern Girls

Oops!  I meant to publish this the other day, typed it and like an idiot forgot to press publish!!  So sorry! 

Sooo... it's been a while huh!?  Glad to report that I'm back on it, mojo restored and raring to go :-D

And what better way to start than with a new Challenge for Southern Girls, which this fortnight is Get Krafty which is sponsored by 7 Dots Studio and Saturated Canary.

I was fortunate enough to use one of the fabulous Saturated Canary images, Princess Reading Beauty, and I teamed them with some MME papers from my stash, matting and layering them on Kraft c/s and stitching with my sewing machine.  I found some blue and Kraft flowers in my stash and a Tim Holtz ticket that seemed appropriate!  I couldn't help but add some lace and velvet ric rac and some pearls and pins as well, some things are never going to change!!

I've coloured my image with copics and added a touch of Glamour Dust to her shoes and headress - well every girl likes a bit of sprarkle!

To finish the card off I decorated the inside to match

 Please may I enter these challenges
Copic Marker Europe - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - For A Girl
Diva's By Design - Fairytales
Creative Card Crew - Girly
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Favourite Colour Combo  - Kraft/Blues
Through the Craft Room Door -Anything Goes

See you soon
