My First card for Basic Grey DT

Hi peeps,
Over at Basic Grey we have a lovely sketch for you this time, it's by our lovely Heather and it's fab,

I decided to use my new punch around  the page as well, which was fun as my trimmer cut the size slightly larger so of course it didn't match up correctly, after a lot of cursing I tried an old trimmer I had and it worked perfectly! what's the point of a trimmer that measures wrong!!! so needless to say I'm not a happy bunny lol!
right not what you wanted to hear! so I'll be good now,
My image is of course a Magnolia from the latest collection not sure what's she's called maybe Tilda with cake!!! do you think? lol
she's coloured with distress inks and I've added diamond glaze on her shoes, but I think you'll have to take my word for that he he,
the gorgeous paper are of course Basic Grey and are from the porcelain  collection 6 by 6 pad, just found out you can't get it in this size any more and I'm gutted!

As you can see my papers are stitched and distressed something I love to do, oh and I think if you look closely you may be able to see the glaze on her shoes after all lol,
The ribbon is seam binding that was part of a lovely birthday pressie from my lovely blogging friend Mandy, thanks hun I love them all,
Pearl gems, lace and roses from stash,

I think my shadows a little to dark on this image must remember for next time lol,
Fussy and Fancy ~ use something edible on your project
If the shoe fits ~ Birthday
All that scraps  Magnolia ~ Let's celebrate Birthdays

will check up later to see if there's any more,
Hope you all have a lovely weekend, hope to catch up with you soon,
