A Blue Lylah

Good morning all. It seems like forever since I posted anything but it has been because I have been busy making cards to sell with my sister and mother which are now posted on a separate blog MD Squared.

The above card I have made for my sister-in-law and I have used the sketch from Tickled Pinks Monthly Challenge last month. I have just changed this post as I just got the bookmark done too that was required for the challenge. I have made it blue so that it fits in the challenge over at Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge. The image used is Lylah. The papers are October Afternoon Thrift Shop and the card is SU Kraft Cardstock. I have added the edges of doilies which I inked blue along the edges. The lace was from the stash. The sentiment is stamped on a paper tag that I bought from the local newsagents and everything has been inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, I am loving it at the moment. The hat pin is from Bizzy Becs. I coloured the image in with my copics and added a little sparkle with my Spica pens.

I loved this sketch so much that I have used it to make an ATC in the same theme that I will show you a little later.
