Wooohooo!! I'm back. Missing from blogger again for a couple of weeks as I've been to Cyprus to visit my daughter. Anyway, it's challenge #116 at I LOVE PROMARKERS and the theme is to use hat pins and/or a charm. Our sponsor is our blog boss Karen and she is offering a selection of her pins to the winner. All the DT used hat pins made by Karen.
For my card I chose this fabulous image from Teddy Bo. I really enjoyed colouring her in and I added all sorts of layers to my card. It's actually quite different from my normal style, but much more the style that I'd like to do (when doing cute that is, lol).

I used an Edgeability die to cut round the image, Martha Stewart border punches and punch around the page, blossoms from WOC and Marianne, 2 square doilies, Marianne dies, ribbons, pearls and some gorgeous net/grid type stuff that I recently bought. My papers are from the Cosmo Cricket 'Delovely' pad and finally, the hat pins.
