Messy Bessy

Hi everyone. Somehow it is already the third Monday of October so I'm here with a DT card for My Besties UK.

In today's Same but Different post, we have all used Messy Bessy, a fab Sherri Baldy My Bestie image which you can buy here.  Pop over to the My Besties UK blog to see the other fantastic DT cards- if you leave us a comment, you could win this image.

When I first got the image, I had plans to create an autumn inspired card. However I found these very pretty Lily of the Valley Nitwit papers and so ended up using pink and green.

This card sees me using a few things I haven't used before. I have used a Crafter's Companion square frame die and Tonic Flourish die (I cut the flourish into 3 parts) to add some interest. I never use ready made flowers but had these Scrapberry's ones in my stash and they seemed perfect. The lace, ribbon and pearls are definitely part of my normal style however!

I have coloured using Spectrum Noir markers. There were some new skin and hair combinations for me here too. The colours used are:
Hair TN1 GB1 GB6 GB7
Skin TN1 TN2 FS1 FS7
Eyes TB3
Clothes CR2 CR3 CR4 LG2 LG3

I would like to enter this card for the following challenge:
Cardz 4 Galz Pink and Pearly

Thanks for visiting today and for your lovely comments. Don't forget to pop over to the My Besties UK blog for a chance to win this digi and check out our current challenge whilst you're there.
