Oldie but a Goodie

Today is my second spot as GDT for the Oldie but a Goodie challenge and this weeks challenge is just up my street lol – Pink and Girly.  My card for the challenge is another of the commission cards I had to make last week, and I have used an old Sugar Nellie which I forgot I even had and don’t know why, it’s the sweetest image!  I do love Elisabeth Bell’s images, she captures the innocence of these little children so perfectly.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (bar the biggest one which I found at the bottom of the drawer when I was having a tidy out).  I used 10mm roses, 25mm hybrid tea roses, 6mm rose buds.

The 25mm organza ribbon is also from Wild Orchid Crafts and the gorgeous papers are from Bearly Mine Crafts – Vintage Collection which I have printed on to Centura Pearl paper and the pearlescent sheen the paper gives off is exquisite.

The sentiment is printed (fonts used Amazone and Chocolate Box – both free fonts).  I coloured the image with copics:

Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair & Swing: E79, E74, E50
Rope: E35, E30
Dress, Tights and Shoes: E43, E41, E40, R21, R11, R00

Thanks to the Oldie but a Goodie girls for having me join them as their GDT for the first two challenges, it’s been such fun!

Thanks for stopping by,
