Hippy chick

Evening all, I'd like to share another card with you today showing my fave Krista Smith image.  This hippie chick reminds me so much of myself in my teens, when all I wanted to do was save the animals and work for green peace lol.

I did post this coloured image previously as it was the first time i'd used my prisma pencils and I thought it was about time she made it onto a card.

I have used my favourite cordinations cardstock to mat all of my layers, the pretty papers are by prima and i've gone around all off the edges with a white gel pen.

I used lilac bakers twine to hold my little dragon fly charm (both from ribbon girl) and the ticket sentiment is from whimsy which has been cut with the matching die.

 I made the rolled flower using cordinations card (again) with a marianne die and the corners are whimsy.

The little butterflies are MS.

One last picture and thats me done ready to watch the footy.

I do hope you like my card, thank you so much for any comments you may leave.

Hugs xx Cara xx
