Not a Xmas Card!

Just fancied a change from making Xmas cards. I think you might struggle to find a less Xmassy card than this. She's quite a change of style for me. I saw a similar card a while back on the blog of my lovely blogging pal, Cheryl. I'd been thinking of getting this stamp for ages, but her inspiration finally sealed the deal. I have used her before now, but never put her on my blog. She's from That's Crafty.

I made her for this weeks challenge at A Spoonfull of Sugar, where the challenge this week is to make a monochrome card. I'm not sure just how sweet she is though, LOL!! I coloured her with Distress Inks & paper pieced her swimsuit. I wanted her to wear a rose in her hair. I think they overdid on the plant food though, as this rose is nearly as big as her head!! I hope she's got a strong neck, LOL! I think the DPs are 7 Gypsies.

There's not much else to say about this card. Having recently shown stamps stamps that look like my son & my sister, I wish I could say this one looks like me. I did give her brown hair, but the rest is wishful thinking!! I need to work a lot harder down at the gym!
Well, thanks for looking. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
Big Hugs for Everyone!
