Papertake Weekly

Hi Girls. The last day of the holiday weekend already. I just don't know where the time is going. They say that it's a sign of old age. I really appreciate you taking time out of you holiday to visit me here. I just hope you find something that brings a little pleasure to make your visit worthwhile.
I made this card for the current Papertake Weekly challenge where they gave us a wonderful sketch to follow. I took the opportunity to use Elizabeth Bell's "New Friends" image that my daughter-n-law, Sarah stamped for me before she came up on holiday. I think she is gorgeous (another one I'll just have to buy). I coloured her using my Copics. The paper is Daydream's "Rain Boots" and I have used plain card for matting and layering and for making my homemade flowers. The embellishments are from my stash. I have sprayed liberally with stickles and Glimmer Mist although it probably won't show on the photograph.
I hope you like this enough to leave me a comment. I do so love reading what you have to say. You give me a lot of help and encouragement.
Thank you for calling. I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday and stay safe,
Hugs,

  15. You're right Fiona she is gorgeous :)
    You've coloured her fantastically too!

    The border on my latest card is actually 'lace' - the type you buy for edgeing - it is more of a cotton crocheted one tho.
