Vintage chic

Hello lovely people,

Today I have a card to share that was one of those ones that just came together so easily - yes, it doesn't happen very often!  I really must step away from the pink more often...ok, I don't think that will happen but I do love the colours here.

I know I say this about all the SC images but this is just gorgeous!  I had a lot of fun colouring in pretty bright colours too :-)
I also don't think I have credited Dr Hubby with the most recent improvement in my hair colouring.  He suggested that I should leave a white bit to make it look more shiny and although it feels a bit scary when doing it, he is right you know!  Shhh, don't tell him though!

Card recipe;
DP: Stella & Rose 'Mabel' - MME
Sentiment: Clear mini sentiment set - Kaisercraft
Crochet flower: made by my mother-in-law
Button: from stash

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/21/11
Hair: E57/59/49
Eyes: E57/59
Lips: R21/22
Orange bits: YR21/23/24
Green bits: G21/12
Brown on dress: E41/42/43
Bag: E40/41/42
Roses: R39/89
Shoes: W6/7/8/10
Ground: W00/0/1/2/3

This morning I was all geared up for a crafty day, sat in my craft room and discovered that Mr Mojo had decided to go on a little holiday :-(  So I gave up and pottered around the house for most of the day, popped back in the craft room and Mr Mojo suddenly re-appeared - hurrah!  Let's hope he stays around tomorrow too and I hope he visits you all as well :-)

Thanks for popping in and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx
