Maggie with Flowers

I have been very lazy the last few days as my neck is really playing up at the mo and hurts like h*ll. Even the short time it will take me to post this will be enough for me for today! I am not going to say too much about this card except that I thoroughly enjoyed tearing the papers distressing them!
It is being entered into the following challenges:~ Pollycraft No 51, Crafty Catz Challenge No 39 and I Love Promarkers - Distressing.
Image is Maggie with Flowers from Sugar Nellie Home Range coloured with PMs~
Satin, Pastel Pink, Ivory & Blush for skin;
Poppy & Cool Grey 4 for shoes and flowers;
Caramel & Sandstone for hair and
Pastel Blue & Cornflower for her dress. I wrapped it all up in Cool Grey 1.
Papers are freebie for magazine;
Ribbons from stash;
Whispers Savoy Green Ink used for distressing.

  5. Gorgeous card Sheila, I have this image (not my stamp, someone stamped a couple for me) hope when i use it it looks as lovely as this.
    Sure can pinch the buton idea, whats great is- just like when you make your own flowers, u can use the same papers as you've used on the card and match them up. I have made cirles, triangles, ovals, the hearts are super, just cut loads and stack them all up with glue. Good Luck. Debbiexx
