tres chic, Diva Melanie

 This is a commissioned card for an elegant young lady , who is 18 on Christmas day, she has long blond hair and is very tall and slim, she loves shopping and fashion, so this is what I came up with.
The stamp is a rubber romance Diva called Melanie, I've coloured her with promarkers and paper pieced the bags.The silver buckle is from     , the bling gem letters from Hobby craft, the silver border and sentiment (with a charm from the hobby house attached.)craft work cards. The papers are Bird Song , by first edition.
The card it's self is an 8x8 size with scalloped edges by craftwork cards.
The finial touches are some paper and feathers coming out of the bag and the image corners stamped with lili of the valley grunge corners.

Challenges entered :
Craft challenge : Birthday
Inky impressions :lots of layers
love to create :lots of layers
everybody art : bingo (charm, pink,ribbon)

I felt a bit poorly last few days, bad tummy pains, not nice.
The weather here today is cold but bright and sunny so I'd better drag my aching self on a dog walk.
 Have a great day.janex

I like the personal feel of a card with age and name on it! This is a superb card for a shopping loving 18-year old (can you find a 18-year old girl who doesn't like shopping?)
