Pixie in Red....

Hi everyone

What can I say... after a dull grey few days.. the sun is momentarily out... and I say momentarily 'cause its supposed to be all rain and doom this long weekend in South Africa. Tomorrow we celebrate National Women's day.. and many people have opted to take leave on Friday.. making it a 4 day weekend.. wonderful... maybe the weather man got it wrong and the sun will shine after all ...lol...we can only hope.

Back to todays card, I feel like I am kinda cheating with this one.. 'cause it was assembled @ out World Card Making Day last year.. so I have to thank my friend Sharon Byrne for the basic layout and supplies. I just had to colour my little pixie and add the flourishes, pearls and sentiment today... so its not a completely "made by me" and its not with my off cuts.. but I found it in the cupboard packing away my order of card stock.. and realised that it had been there for the last few months..

So basically all I did was add some stickles to the flowers in her hair, her belt, necklace and the bouquet. And just added some black enamel accents on her dress buttons and shoes. Coloured her in with my Pro Markers and adds pearls to the swirl accents and of course cut out a tiny tag and added a sentiment. I do hope my ipad's camera pics up the detail on my image..

thanks for the visit.. have a great day wherever you are!
