China Girl

Good morning everyone hope you are fine! Today's card is one I made for the challenge at Lili's Little Fairies which this week is Pearls.  Here is my card:

This little sweetie is of course a Lili of the Valley stamp and I have coloured her with my Copics.  I have distressed the edges of the image with Milled Lavender Distress Ink and she has been cut and matted with a SB Nestie.  The photo corners are a Whimsy die and the border is a Dienamics die.  The butterfly and flower are Memory Box.  The sentiment is Lilly of the Valley and I have added a bow from the Memory Box heart die.  The papers are Wild Rose Studio. I have added pearls to the frame and flowers and some Liquid Pearls to the decoration in her hair.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Lili's Little Fairies - Pearls
Loves Rubber Stamps - Lots of Layers
Creative Creations - Inspired by a Song - China Girl by David Bowie
Cutie Pie Challenge - Pretty Pastels

I'm off to meet a friend for shopping and lunch today.  Hope you all have a fab day and thank you so much for taking the time to come and visit me!  Take care xx
