Blonde and Beautiful.........

Lauren is off to one of her friends birthday parties tonight and needed a card made. I recently bought a bag of stamped images at a community market stall and she had a look to see what she liked and chose this one! I found out when I was colouring her that all the ink bled :(, so have had had to go over some bits again with a fine black liner, on having a close look at the other images left in the bag I am now wondering if they have infact been printed off instead of stamped :(...oh well never mind eh.

I used some papers from a K & Co 'Hopscotch' pad and coloured with my Promarkers. I then used Stickles on various parts, added a few blossoms and a Craftwork Cards sentiment ( which I had gently coloured with Promarkers...along with the bling, which was originally clear :)

I had planned on colouring her hair in auburn tones, but Lauren wanted blonde as it looks more like her friend lol. Hope she likes it! I won't find out until tomorrow as Lauren and some of the others are sleeping over.
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend :)
Warmest wishes
Anita..xxx
