Birthday blues

Ok so that title may be slightly misleading.  It as short for blue hair and birthday card :D

I've used Top Knot from Wendy's All Dressed Up Etsy store for the new Facebook Challenge inspiration.  For this month the challenge theme is to Add Ribbon and / or Lace!
I've coloured her with ProMarkers adding blue hair just to be different.  She's been cut out with a Spellbinders die and then I've used some Milled Lavender ink from Tim Holtz to distress the edges.

Design papers are from Maja Design and Lili of the Valley.  There are two strips of satin ribbon in colours matching the card colour scheme from Crafty Ribbons.

The punched heart was a left over from using a La La Land banner die. I've used some papers flowers in a double cascade, some purple gems and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley coloured with ProMarker.

Don't forget to look out for the new challenge starting on the blog on 15 August.  the Dressy Girls have been having a break but are back soon :D
