Lady Victoria

Hi everyone - sorry for the late post but this is the first chance I've had to write a post since I got back yesterday (been away for a few days for my father-in-law's funeral). So this'll be a quick post today.

Here's my card for the Colour Create Challenge No 88. The wonderful colour combo of Pink and Green has been picked by our talented Suzie this time and her optional extra is handmade flowers. The design team have made some really beautiful cards today.

We're sponsored by:

and they gave us some images to play with - I adore this image (Lady Victoria) because she is so sassy!

I hope I've done her justice.

Items used:
Image: Kenny K - Lady Victoria
