Party Girl


I have borrowed this sentiment from a key fob of my DD's and I thought it would be fun for the new Frilly  & Funky challenge which is "I'll take your word for it". Not intentionally motivational but certainly a giggle.
It has taken ages to put this together...I printed the image and then couldn't decide on the papers, I am trying to use up my old paper stash.

Image source unknown/forgotten, but from a free vintage site. Layered on to music paper well distressed with a mix of DI's. Main BP's - Crafty Secrets and K & Co. The tag shape is from Crafty Ann's 'Journaling Tags' digi sheet with the sentiment printed on computer and cut out by hand. A bit more distressing and a final swipe around the edge with gold pentouch.

My rather poor attempt at crinoline flowers have been coloured with Spun Sugar DI with glittered brads for the centres.

Extras - lace, feather, stick pins and a glittery S/binders Fleur de Lis corner

Frilly & Funky #2 - I'll take your word for it
OLLCB #102 - vintage
Paper Pretties - lots of layers
Tuesday Throwdown #93 - stick pins
The Cheerful Stamp Pad #40 - from the past
Truly Madly Crafty April challenge - handmade flowers
Crafty Purple Frog # 38 - let's get distressed

Thank you for stopping by today and for all your lovely encouraging comments - I appreciate every one of them :)
Cheers me dears
