Mirror Mirror on the wall......

Morning fellow bloggers.  I hope you are having better weather than we have here - it is dull with spots of rain and just thoroughly miserable today ~ where has the sunshine gone?

My card for today is using the Fabulous Darling from Simply Sassy at Funky Kits ~ ain't she simply sassy??!!
I used my Promarkers to colour her (details below) and, still using them, stamped several flowers using a Papermania set of floral clear stamps onto the background of the smooth white card from Rymans (it is fab for PMs); used them once more to create an exact match colour for backing piece of card.  I distressed the edges of all the card to create that vintage look and I think it is perfect for this papers too! The DP is Dovecraft Funky Vintage that I bought from The Range ~ I fell in love with it cos t reminds me of lots of clothes I used to wear in the late 70s and early eighties (now you know how young I am he he).  Oh I long for those days again..........

I am entering this into several challenges:~
