Hi all, and today’s card is a card with a difference -I drew the image myself. So when you get to the comment box please, please let me know what you think of it. I coloured it in with Promarkers to the colours chosen at C R A F T, adding extra patterns to her skirt and bag.

I chose to use a Daisy and Dandelion lilac paper with faux stitched swirls on it as the main backing paper. Once that was secured to the white card ground, I drew myself swirls into two corners and pricked through the design and then erased the pencil lines. Pricking it first made it easier to hand sew the light green thread with a plain running stitch to echo the lilac paper. A light green card mat is behind the image, at an angle as the sketch dictates and two lilac gems finish it off.

As I said, I would appreciate any comments and I thank you in advance for your feedback.
