Pretty Lady

 I have  made this for the following challenges

Sketch and Stash #53 - Sketch
Crafty Sentiments - My favourite things - vintage, flowers, bling  and pretty paper
Kaboodle Doodles  #51 -  Bling it up
Penny's #45 - Anything goes

One of my saved vintage images and I merged her onto a frame which I have 'vintaged' with gold pentouch.
For a change there is a lot that is NEW on this card - the BP is from a new Paper Cellar pad bought at my local Dunelm which has just opened a little craft area.....whoopeee.
This is the first time I have used my NEW MS border punch and the BP is from Bearly Mine.
The middle flower I made the other evening..... along with a few others :-)
 Edit: Here is the link to Mandy's flower tutorial

Of course it needed some bling so I've added clear gems...quite generous for me, lol. Ooops don't forget the pearl in the centre of my lovely flower.

Thank you for visiting today

Cheers me dears :-)
