Little Miss Bossy...

We've been to the cinema today, just me and Pav, for the first time in 3.5yrs!  We saw Pirates of the Caribbean, just because Pav wanted to see a 3d film lol... really enjoyed it, apart from it being FREEZING in the cinema.  It's been a nice change being able to do something together, one benefit of Dex starting nursery :o)  So today's card is a fairly quick one...



I started off following a sketch, but as usual for me I've veered so far away from it I think the only thing I kept the same was the oval!

I've used another neglected Gorjuss Girl stamp, coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  Papers are Dovecraft 'back to basics' with dark purple core'dinations cardstock.  Flowers were cut with an MFT die, pearls from my stash, and the sentiment is from Elzybells (which has now closed).

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Back tomorrow with some exciting news... well, exciting for me anyway :o)

Hi Lisa

A beautiful and neat card. Love the colour choices and that lovely sentiment .. .. it made me smile.

How lovely to be having a bit of time with hubby .. .. shame the cinema was so cold! It isn't like the tickets are cheap in the first place is it and then to freeze watching doesn't encourage you to go back in a hurry!!

Can't wait to hear your good news!!

Love Jules xx
