Just Magnolia Challenge - Friends

, Hi everyone! Well the copic saga continues, lol. I am still awaiting my skin tones so no colouring for me :( . On the upside I am getting to use images I had previously coloured, like this beautiful Tilda from Magnolia. 

I am entering it into Just Magnolia's challenge which is themed Friends along with some other challenges, listed below.

I made this card for my DT submission on Basic Grey Challenges - with the theme of Shabby Chic - only I forgot one key ingredient.. yes.. I used no Basic Grey on it, duh!!! It has certainly been one of those weeks, lol. 

The paper I did use is from Tim Holtz and it's about the only scrap of that paper I had left. I teamed it with some blue and some white card and machine stitched them. The border work was done using my new favourite MS punch. The flowers, seam binding and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the white stamens (?) were in my from my RAK from Ali. As always, I've added some pearls - LOVE pearls!!! 

Copics used
Skin - E11, 01, 50. Hair - E70, 74, 77. Dress/Shoes - B91, 93, 95. Heart - R22, 24, 29. Socks - C1

This is gorgeous Sandie!! I love all of the cool blues teamed with the white!

Is that a little tag you've got the 'friend' sentiment on?! So cute and itty bitty!!

Seems like everyones been having one of those weeks. I seriously don't know whether I'm coming or going, or what day it is. Not being at uni regular has turned my brain to mush!!

Hope you're well, xo Lou.
