Totally Papercrafts No13

Excuse the blurred image - it has been a long hot day here in North London.........and my neck is playing up!
This card is made using Let's Chat digi image that I recently won in StretchNBubbles Challenge No2. I used Promarkers to colour her in to match my papers from Pink Petticoat - the pink floral one and the blue gingham one - the purple used for layering and the mirri board used for the window are both from my stash.
I added two ribbons - one on the curtains and another as her dressing gown belt (you can see it better in the close up) - which I feel works quite well even tho it took me ages to do. Embs were added to make up the ingredients for Totally Papercrafts recipe of -
4 embellishments
3 papers
2 ribbons/lace
1 image.

I made the sentiment on the PC and tried to keep it humourous as the winner this week receives 7 FREE DIGIS from Bugaboo Stamps. They are fabulous! Do go and have a look!
I do hate to say this but Let's Chat looks so like my Mam as I remember her many years ago when rollers were the 'in' thing used by Mums everywhere to curl their hair every night!!!
Thank the Lord for hairdryers and straighteners!!
