LOTV 57 sketch: flower girl thanks

LOTV has a fab sketch this week so thought I'd play along for a change and made this the other day.  I adore this range and can't wait for the new christmas releases due out on Wed (14th).  I'm sooo in trouble as I'm loving all the sneek peeks so far and I know it's a big release so just hope I can control myself and not go too mad clicking them all into my basket LOL not to mention I've run out of EZ and need to get some more first.

Anyway, here's my card.

 I've used one of the earlier stamps on my card (still got a fair few waiting for an inking :o) coloured with Copics, as per usual, and teamed her with some freebie MME papers off a mag, added a splash of black with the ribbon,  pearls and doodling just to tie in the colour of her hair (I colour hair black so often that I need refill for my W3 copic.  Wonder if I could use it to touch up my white hairs LOL and save me having to hit the dye bottle again).  Bit of bling courtesy of the diamante buckle, stickles and teeny tiny shimmery adhesive dots for the buttons on her jacket. Frilliness courtesy of a Martha border punch and job done. You might be able to see the cute shimmer dot buttons better on photo below

Right, I'm off to go finish another card and relax a bit before bedtime (yup, it's gone midnight) as that's all the time I have at home at the moment.  We're short 1 chef at work, so me & hubby are having to slog it out till we train up a new one again - the joys of being your own boss eh?!

Till next time,
