3 for 1: 'Fabulous'

Hello! Hope you all had a good bank holiday even if it was ever so slightly wet! I managed to have a little play with a couple of new things yesterday before I had to go work and have finished it today.

It's for the colour challenge over on Basic Grey (black, grey & 1 other colour) and I've gone for orange as my third colour and used papers from the 'Ambrosia' pad. Now that I've finished it I notice it also fits 2 other challenges which is a bonus! Secret crafters this week is 'flowers' and Spoonful of sugar is 'touchy-feely' (texture) which I think there is plenty of with all the punched out bits, raised surfaces and also the tulle netting. (Just noticed I've smudged some of the stickles onto her eye - oopsie!)

This cutie is from The Greeting Farm, from their new line called wild sprouts and this one is called Dahlia. They were released on Fri but I was lucky to get them when they had their pre-release sale couple of weeks ago. I love the slightly goth/rock chick look to them but not too much IYKWIM! I am really loving all their stuff at the moment and am sooo looking forward to their 2nd Miss Anya set (have you seen them?!)

I'm not going to do a list today (any questions just leave comment) as I seem to have woken up with a pain in my neck (no, it's not hubby!) and it's getting worse now and feel headache coming on too so am going to stay off pc now and go take it easy for the rest of the day. Hopefully will be able to whip up an ATC later, as that shouldn't take too long, so see you tomorrow!
