The Dressy Girls have been taking a short summer break and are due back soon for the new challenge starting 15 August on the All Dressed Up challenge blog.
 Now us newbies didn't do many inspirations cards before the break so I decided to do one or two things (like another canvas-wedding based this time) and then there's this card I've just made using  Little Sweetie!

She's been coloured with ProMarkers and her hair was done with Copics, black polychromos and black biro.  I decided to do her in red and black - I love this combination as it can make a card look really striking.

I've mentioned before that she looks like she's looking out of a window.  So I decided to create her, her own window box in summery hot red flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Added to this are a couple of tiny silver dragonfly beads.

To complete the looking out of a window look I managed to find some brick wall design paper from Lemoncraft.

We're all looking forward to coming back and giving you a little inspiration on what to do with Wendy's fantastic images
