Happy Spring to those of us on this side of the world and Happy Autumn to those on the other! It's been Spring here for 9 whole days and Sydney has been putting on a wonderful show, with lovely sunny days and blue skies. I want to spend all my time outside enjoying the warmer weather, after my hibernating ways through Winter.
We have a new challenge over at The Squirrel and The Fox, and this one should be pretty popular!
Now I am sure you have just created something that's perfect - so make sure you head over and enter for your chance to win 5 free digis from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More.
I made this card for my friend's sister in law. She's a party girl and seems to attend more than her fair share of dress up parties, she's even been to a Jersey Shore party. I bought this image especially, Kenny K's Freida Flapper - isn't she wonderful? She looks like she's been captured mid Charlston, dancing up a storm with her cigarette in one hand - I guess people must have danced quite far apart in those days with such a high risk of setting your neighbour alight!
I decided to keep my colour combination very simple, just pink and black. I finally had a chance to use the black lace from my grandmother's collection and now I think I will be using it a lot more!
Frieda was coloured with copics, and the papers are Carta Bella "Paris Girl". I thought they fitted the image perfectly. I added some matching pink pearls and black gems. My favourite embellishment was the sparkly gems that I stuck to her headpiece. I'm not sure the photos do them justice, they sparkle brilliantly under the light.
