Ribbons- Some Odd Girl 23

Hi there! it’s yet another dull and rainy day here, so a perfect day to sit in my craft area and make some cards! today I’ve been playing with the image ‘ribbons’ which I chose using part of my store credit, when I won a recent challenge over at some odd girl.. she’s such a pretty image, and these portrait style images are perfect for practising your colouring on skin and hair!


I’m usually all about Mae, but I couldn’t resist this Gwen image, and I love that beautiful flower arrangement she has in her hair!

I teamed her with some of my favourite prima papers, WOC flowers and some spellbinders dies, for this slightly OTT style card with lots of layers… I hope you enjoy her, and as always, I’ll add my product list below so you can see exactly what I’ve used!
