A reason to smile

Hello all!  Are you having a great weekend?  It's very cloudy in the UK so decided to do some [bloomin'] gardening (can you tell how much I love it?!) instead of going down to the coast.  I managed to sneak in some crafting time and made this card...


My Ladybug Crafts Ink DT pal Gaelle and I recently did a swap of stash and she sent me this wonderful Lil Lolita Lilith by Tickled Pink.  I matched her up with this sentiment from a set by The Greeting Farm Roll Call kit.  I think they are the perfect match - I just love her po-face!  This is going to go to one of my friends who can crack a joke and look miserable at the same time!  (She described it herself like that to me, I would never be so rude!!)

I used the wonderful My Minds Eye Stella & Rose Gertie papers - I'm running desperately low on this pad now but must be strong and not buy another one!!

I'd like to enter this card into the Stampavie and More challenge to use black and Copic Creations challenge to use your favourite paper for Copic  colouring (mine is Neenah Classic!).

Enjoy the rest of your day and see you tomorrow with a very special announcement I have to make!!

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill kraft cardstock, My Minds Eye Stella & Rose Gertie papers (got mine from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Lil Lolita Lilith by Tickled Pink (you can buy her from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here), sentiment from The Greeting Farm Roll Call kit (Quixotic Paperie sells here)
Mediums: Copics
Accents: Stampin Up ribbon, 4mm pearl gems (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Tools: Nestabilities label die inside card

I must admit she does look as if she is at a funeral but with such a sweet face she does need to smile.

Great card,
