far! A big HELLO to my newest followers....thanks so much for joining me!
 Wasn't Strictly fab....all that glitz & glamour and the lovely  Darcy
Bussell inspired me to finish this card.....and I enjoyed every minute of it!
It was lovely to make a real girly in a house full of rugby
loving boys Miss Rebecca and me need to take every pink/purple moment
we can lol! We watched the rugby this afternoon :( so it could have been a
 totally different style of card lol....gutted for England....they played so well!
This adorable image was a freebie from All Dressed Up.......isn't she just
gorgeous and just perfect for the challenge over there! She's coloured
with my fabby Flexmarkers, the bunting paper was a mag freebie, card 
from my stash, Sizzix corner die, foliage punch, flowers & ribbon!
Oh, and a sprinkle of glitter but it doesn't show up so well on the photo,
Hope you like her, she was a pleasure to colour!
