Crafting for all Seasons #55 Make it Girly

Good morning all. 
Sorry I've not been around much but I've been busy with wedding stuff again, I think it's all under control now! Can't believe it's just over a week away now.

I'm off out for a day to Alnwick Castle and Gardens with hubby's Aunties and Uncle who are in Northumberland on holiday. Hoping the weather stays dry! Will also be able to check out the wedding venue whilst we're there.

Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Make it Girly". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Saturated Canary who gave the DT images to work with. This is a birthday card for my niece ready for next month.

I chose Muriel to work with and coloured her with promarkers before die cutting with a Spellbinders die. Papers are from Echo Park. Card is finished with a twine bow, charm and sentiment from my stash.

I've attached the sentiment with a springy thing which was a little bent! I love how this turned out, considering it was made in double quick time it all fell together peaceably...do like it when that happens!

  23. I was not going to say anything but.... Your card is lovely but I see that you have coloured parts of your image with skin tone colours and I'm unsure about the dark card, is it black? Please check the requirements of the Craft-Room Challenge as you do seem to have included dis-allowed colour. Zoe
