LOTV #86 & CRAFT #92


Hi girls. Thank you for coming in to see me today on my blog. You are very welcome and I hope you find something that you like. I trust all is well with you all and that you are having a great time crafting and blogging. I had a fun afternoon yesterday when my friend Kathleen came round and we enjoyed a couple of hours crafting and chatting.
I am entering this card into two challenges. Lili of the Valley gave us a fabulous sketch by Bev and CRAFT Challenge had a "Mother's Day" theme. I have inked up the LOTV image "New Hat" and coloured it using my Copics. I have paperpieced and decoupaged the shoes and the dress. The design paper is SEI Juliette and I used silver Mirri to mount. The flowers are cut with a Marianne Designs die and the ribbons and brads are from my stash. The sentiment is handmade.
I would love to know what you think of this card so if you have a minute please feel free to leave a comment. Constructive criticism is welcomed.
I hope you have a great day and stay safe and healthy.

  15. I love this card-but then I love that image and now own it thanks to you!!! Just need to get it onto a card and I was thinking of using it for a Mothers day card too. I really like those rich reds you've used and perfectly replicated in your colouring.
