Brown monochromatic card (Make it Crafty image)

Hi crafty friends,

Don't you just love this sassy image from Make it Crafty? She is so cool and I loved colouring that hair!

The stitching is faux and I used a glitter pen and ink on the chipboard bow.

The gorgeous antique gold pearls are from Flourish with a Bling who are having a 50% off sale all throughout February, the only items not discounted are the already amazingingly priced value packs, everything else is half off!! It ends Feb 28th.
