If only....

....Spring were here and we could put away our winter coats.  This beautiful digi image All Wrapped Up from All Dressed Up makes me think of spring.  She's wearing a scarf as though it's a bit chilly but is surrounded by flowers.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers and used some while gel pen for some highlights.  She's cut out with a Spellbinders die and then I decided to make life difficult for myself and mount her onto some purple paper.  This was a little tricky as I had to hand cut round the edges of the die shape.

The design papers used are from Lili of the Valley/NitWit Collections - Solids - Snow Princess and Snow Princess.

I've used some lace, flowers/leaf and organza rose trim from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The final touch to the card is some pearlised self adhesive gems.

Supposed to be sunny here in Yorkshire Tuesday which should really make it feel like spring.
