Cali girl card

One of my favourite artists is Hannah Lynn, this is one of her images (image name is Cali Girl), isn't she a beauty? You can buy them at Crafts & Me (click on name to be taken to the store).

I am also using a favourite embellishment on this card too, a Flourish with a Bling Jack vine in olive green. It also comes in green, forest green and black (click on red name to be taken to the store). I made the background paper with cardstock, texture paste, ink and a brick wall template. It's very difficult to see it's a "brick" feature on this card as I have layered over most of it but I like the overall shabby/distressed effect. 

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
