Lady in Lilac (Not Red!!)~

Hello Girls~

After a really cold, icy start this morning, it has turned out to be a nice day here (still cold tho!)
It's my lovely daughters Birthday tomorrow...she will be 20, so she is no longer a teenager...(cannot believe how quickly they grow up, only feels like a few years ago that she used to look out the window and wait for her daddy coming home from work, yet that was about 16 years ago!!!)

I have been to work this morning, but have managed to have a play this evening.
I had this beautiful Leanne Ellis image already coloured, so decided to pop her onto a card to finish her off.
I absolutely love Leanne Ellis images, very quirky, and she has just brought out some new ones, you can see them on the Sugar Nellie website, go have a look and see what you think.

I have used some Basic Grey Kioshi purple/pink paper and some Basil Card stock. I have used a MS punch around the page in this art deco fan shape (one of my favorites) and a Nestie for the image shape. I have also used a doily, and this one is from my lovely blog friend Sheila, she sent me them at Christmas for my Birthday, thank you sweetie! Lastly I have used some white lacey ribbon from my stash.
These gorgeous flowers are from Bev at Bee Crafty Card Challenge, I won with them last week and I received a fantastic prize from them today, it was super duper, so thank you very much. Go and join in their fun challenges, I do!
