Katies girly lilac bow

Good morning I've got 2 DT cards for you today so if you stopped by to see my creative cottage card it's in the post below x

This week at Cooking it up with Katie it is challenge number 35 and our recipe this week is

Make it Girly
Add a little Lilac
Tie a Bow

and we are sponsored by the fab Robyns fetish digital stamps who kindly treated all the design team to a gorgeous digi stamp for our creations this week you can stop by here store here to view all her great stamps - you'll be spoilt for choice.

My card uses this gorg little girl looking out of the window watching the rain - something I seem to see alot of recently !
I have coloured her with my brand new promarkers and this is my 1st attempt with them so please don't judge me too harshly ! I have added some glitter (diamond sparkles - butterfly trails) for a bit of sparkle.
I used my trusty bigshot and spellbinders labels dies to cut the image and inked it up while still in the die. I only wanted a small border to layer my image onto so I drew around the edge of the die and cut it by hand rather than using the next size die in the set.

The paper is a really old sheet from my massive paper stash (I am really trying not to buy anymore papers I'm running out of room for my children !) it's called Parlor blossoms by scrapbook walls.
I've layered this up with some plain lilac A4 card and used a scrap of an old papermania sheet to make the paper ribbon which is mounted onto some bazzill.

I added some lilac satin ribbon and stitched on a button with co-ordinating thread.
The final touch was a sentiment which I made using microsoft word processor - I also printed get well soon for the inside.
