Lili of the Valley Challenge - Lena's Sketch

Morning all.  Are we ever going to get daylight again?  I made this card last night when it was too dark to take a decent photo (hence the fuzzy one, which I will replace tomorrow) and it's nearly 9.00 Friday morning and it's still dark!!  Don't know about being a squirrel - think I'm becoming part mole!!

Anyhoo, a fabulous sketch by Lena over at LILI OF THE VALLEY CHALLENGE this week and I just had to have a play:

Now, you know me by now and how much I struggle with all these gorgeous embellishments - so it's another straightforward card for you this time, surprise!  This little lady was in my Christmas stocking and I've been itching to ink her up.

I've coloured her with distress inks using mostly Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Dusty Concorde and Tattered Rose.  There are a few highlight colours like Spun Sugar, Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick in there for good measure.

The papers are MME Fine & Dandy - True Blue, the corners are Sizzix Architectural Accents dies and the Candy Dots and gems are from the stash.

Thanks for popping over, hope to see you later.
Hugs, Sxx

Another winner, Squirrel/mole! If that's your way of telling me that you haven't had any sun over there, I believe you! She's gorgeous and I love all your papers and embellies. Give Vince a squeeze from me,
