Sweet Little Girl...

Hi Susan here....

Well its Saturday and I hope everyone has a great weekend.

My card today is 'just for me', I had some spare time and have not made a card using a Lili of the Valley image for ages so I got stuck in.

I have used my favourite colours, pink of course, I always think pink first, but I have mixed it this time with another one of my favourites brown. The sketch is from Lili of the Valley and I have followed it without  any twisting and turning, I loved using it, inspiration poured from it. The papers are all from my stash, these have either been printed for other creations or from old scrapbooking stacks. I haven't distressed or inked this time I wanted to leave it plain and clean. I just used the various shades of my colours to mat and layer. My beautiful shiny white organza ribbon and pearls are from our local market. His little stall is like an alladins cave, everywhere you look there is something there hidden away waiting to be found by someone.

The sentiment is a sticker from a set that we bought years ago with a selection of papers and bits and bobs for scrapbooking.
This beautiful little rubber image from Lili of the Valley is one of my favourites, it always reminds me of my two daughters Emma and Jeni playing dressing up with my shoes and bags and my make-up, wow thats a story I could tell!!! They used to play for hours and this little image always make me smile and remember.
I have used promarkers to colour it.
