Cali Girl

Happy Sunday crafty friends!
A quick post to share a DT ard with you today.

We have a new Card Challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
The challenge theme this week is ~ Add a die cut.

This image is called Cali Girl by Hannah Lynn from Crafts and Me.
I have colored her with Copic markers.
I just love the way her hair flows.

I kept the card pretty simple as I wanted the pretty image to stand out.
A thin layer of cheese cloth and a piece of delicate cluny lace 
were placed in between DPs to further soften the look.

I also top stitched and distressed all paper edges, and 
added some Shabby White Frantage on the roses and DP.

DPs are from Pion Design Fairytale Spring collection.
Leave die is by Marianne Design.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
35mm Pale pink Trellis rose, white Lily flower, 
Sophie white cluny lace, and cheese cloth.

You can see more Ribbon Girl creations here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
