Spread Your Wings My Precious Friend

Before I post my card can I just say that we have all had a very sleepless night here in Enfield, North London due to the riots. They started in Enfield Town but spread to the shopping park near to where we live and also several shops on the local main road were looted nearby to us.  I will not say what I think but you can guess what is going thru my mind about these youngsters........

Here is my first card for today - I have been up most of the night just sitting here in my 'new' craft room - cannot provide pics of it yet as it is not completely finished yet - too many boxes lying around etc.  Promise to post pics very soon.......using another fabulous Simply Sassy stamp (Spread Your Wings) I used my PMs to colour.  I hope you like her hair colour - I 'borrowed' the idea from Lou Mac - you have to visit her blog to see her colour combos (they are fabulous).

 All the papers are backed with plain white card coloured with appropriate colour in PMs and I made the flowers myself - good eh?

Spread Your Wings from Simply Sassy;
PMs ~ Blush, Oatmeal, Pastel Pink,, Dusky Pink, Rose Pink, Antique Pink, Dusky Rose, Grass, Duck Egg, Azure & Cool Grey 1;
Papers are a freebie from Papercraft Inspirations;
Sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps;

Gems and ribbon from stash.
