Hmmm... parasol or brolly you decide

This image is called Becca and you can find her in my shop SheepSki Designs (I've just added her)
She's been coloured with ProMarkers so she has beautiful blonde hair and a simple pallet of red and white.  I'm still now sure if she's got a brolly or a parasol - but I suppose she could be coloured with either in mind (walking on a spring day or in the rain).  I've coloured her with a Spring day on mind.

The design papers (there are actually six layers) are from Lili of the Valley and Wild Rose Studio.  They've been distressed as has the image.  I've also added a sprinkling on embossing enamel to the image.

I've used a Spellbinders die to create the lacy border to the left of the image.

There are lots of added extras on this card the organza rose trim, pearl trim, roses and rose buds were from Wild Orchid Crafts.  There are some hotensias from Live and Love Crafts.  The Lace, orchid and pearl pin were from The Ribbon Girl.

I've also added a piece of chip board flower which is Dusty Attic and some silver dragonfly charms that I found on Amazon.

Hope you like my new creation
