Pollycraft Monday Challenge

Hi I made this for the Pollycraft Monday Challenge
whose theme this week is flowers :-) I received this fabulous image and the papers in an email from Pollycraft yesterday :-) Isn't that nice of them :-)
Unfortunately I started colouring her face before I had let the ink dry properly ( I was so eager !! lol) and the ink did run a bit when I started colouring her face but I think she just looks a bit smudgy and sweaty from all the shopping she's been doing lol. I promise to wait longer next time :-) I decided to give her hair a trim too :-) couldn't be bothered cutting around all those curls, anyway I think it makes her look trendy :-)
I got the idea of embossing the flowers from my Funky fairy's teamie Emma :-)
This card will be going to a Post Pal, have quite a pile now :-)

Thanks for looking, your comments are appreciated so please leave me one :-)

Hi Lorraine love your card isn't she just gorgeous I got this one as well and used her for my card but I also treated myself to a couple more images in the same group. Yes I agree that she has obviously exerted herself with the shopping lol.
