Vintage !

Good morning, hope everyone is keeping warm as it certainly has gone chilly so much so I have dug out my big fluffy dressing gown and warm slippers. But I do love this time of year ! Anyway enough of me going on. Its tuesday so its challenge 11 over at fan-tastic tuesday.
Theme is vintage ( loved this ).
This week we are sponsored by Lacy sunshine and I got to work with Lizabeth Gatsby ! 

 I printed onto watercolour card and used distress inks & water-brush to colour her in. Added lace, flowers and a piece of Anna Griffin paper. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by, I have a day off today and myself my 2 eldest bridesmaids are going shopping and lunch but more importantly the dresses have arrived for them to try on ! The first time I will see them in them in right colour and size etc ! The wedding is less than 7 months away. Eeeeek !
Take care xx
