Pretty Priscilla

Hello Bloggers

Whoo big fuzzies for me today as I managed to create and blog this card in just a few hours hip hip hooray!!!!
Normally I am one to agonize over every piece of paper and its placement and I can spend what seems like forever in my crate of flowers picking out just the right ones but this card seemed to take on a life of its own today and come together in a snap!

Perhaps its the beautiful paper from Graphic 45 (Steampunk Debutante) from Scottie Crafts which I have been holding onto for a while or was it the stunning image from Tiddly inks which was my muse or just maybe it was my first shipment from Wild Orchid Crafts which helped! Either way it happened I am thrilled to bits.

Here is a closer look at Priscilla from the lovely Tiddly inks collection which I have colored up with pencils and odorless mineral spirits.

You might notice a tiny mishap that occurred in my coloring due to me using a die to cut the image before laying down my pencil (silly me), but like all mishaps its great to learn from and I didn't have the heart to throw her away so here she is flaws and all and hopefully I can save you from the same mistake!

I have left the sentiment blank as im not too sure what this card will be for yet but it will be great to hold onto for when I need a quick Thank you or Birthday card!

Well that's all from me today, I have a few more digi images that I am slowly collecting so keep an eye out and hopefully I will have more up soon!!!

Have a great weekend everybody.
