A Good Weekend

Well my crafting mojo seems to have been on the ball today, not only that but my housekeeping mojo appeared from somewhere as well and the house had a bit of a blitz this morning. That's the housework done for this year anyway so that particular mojo can go back into hibernation till next year now lol. Anyway now for the card which I found came together quite easily saying that the colours I used are not ones that I am really comfortable with but I am pleased with how it turned out.

The image is Lili of the Valley and is coloured with ProMarkers, I then added a little glamour dust to her skirt, wings, headband and pom poms. The papers I have used are from my stash and the little pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little lace flowers just peeping out from behind the images are a strip of lace flowers that I've had in my stash for years and have never really known what to do with them. The flowers are a very narrow single strip so I cut three separate lengths the width of the card and then just layered them one on top of the other to make a broader band which I think has turned out ok. I added little crystal pearls to the centres of the flowers that show fully just to highlight them a little as they seemed a bit lost otherwise.
