The image is called "Christening Day, Girl" ("Boy" is available too, of course) and it's available here
I took my colouring with me when we went away for a few days last week and I had great plans to colour up a bunch of images... of course when we got down to Margaret River I realized I'd left my Copics at home - I'd remembered my refills, but not the pens, duh! I had taken my pencils and solvent so I did get a few images coloured with them, this is one of them; it's not often I use only pencils, but I'm reasonably happy with the ones I did... even this one :-)
The diecuts are all made using cream pearl cardstock - it looks nice in real life, but hard to capture in photos
Now, the all important - for a dies challenge - are; Spellbinders Floral Oval for the image mat (actually I made a frame with the image panel glued behind it), Memory Box Magic Flourish to the right of the image and MFT Crochet border for the "lace" across the centre (I think it goes really well with the Floral oval) The rhinestone and pearl embellishment was sourced from a Wedding supplies place on the internet.
The sentiment is from Craftworks Cards, I may change it for a personalized one when I need the card, I attached it with a pearl brad from my stash. The pearl "string" - actually it's a thread of sticky backed pearls - is also from my stash... sadly these are the last I had, I'll have to get more SOMEWHERE, they're so easy to use!
As always I've used elements and papers from the front of the card on the inside, sorry about the quality (or lack thereof!) of some of today's pics... some were taken with my photo tent, the paper didn't like the lighting, or the lights didn't like the paper!
Well that's about it for today's card, a little different in style for me, it was a nice chance to crack out some of my favourite dies... at which point I found all my "new" dies, it's already practically March and I haven't cut one thing with the dies I got for Christmas, even though I've made a few cards over the last couple of weeks, must try harder, lol.
