Dressing up.

Hello the sun is showing its face at last yeah!
Todays card is for the passion for promarkers blog challenge, you had to add something
that was recycled. Check out their blog here
Onto the card.
I used a broken necklace from my grandaughters dressing up box, that was going to be thrown away.
They are the dangly bits from the ribbon going across the middle of the card.
The backing paper I made myself with shaving foam and glimmer mists a while ago now but throught perfect for this card.
I punched the bottom with a friskers punch.
The stamped image is from LOTV and throught went with the necklace whic was my starting point for the card. I coloured in with promarkers, caramel,burnt sienna,coco, blush, warm grey 2,pink carnation,
Antique pink.Plum,ochid andAmethyst.
I used my new nesties lacey squares. and added a sentiment in the corner,
I was going to add flowers but when I put them up to the card I throught it looked better without so they never went on.
Sometimes less is better dont you think?
I hope you like the card for today.
Take care
