Mummy's Shoes!

Oh, how I love this little image from the LOTV girls . . . it brings back such lovely memories of me as a little girl clip clopping along in Mum's shoes . . . we've all done this haven't we???

When I was asked to make a card for a friend's Mum for her 70th birthday I couldn't resist using the image.  The designer paper is from the First Edition "Desert Blooms" paper stack.  I matted it onto a darker plum shade and silver card.

The image was coloured using Copic markers and glittered with a glue pen and some Glamour Dust.  Isn't she  just adorable, a great image for young and old.

The circular sentiment is from Kanban.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (except the very big rose buds), don't buy flowers from anywhere else now!!  The foliage was punched out of cardstock using a Nellie Snellen punch.

I'm entering the following challenges:
