Brown & Pink Shabby Card (Cute as a Button image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Me again with another card and this is my last for the day. I have been creating a few cards for an Australian magazine so I can't show them until the magazine comes out but just so you know, I have still been creating just not as many that I can post on my blog as usual. 

I coloured this gorgeous image from Cute as a Button. I cropped this girl to make it a portrait rather than a full image but I'm sure I will use the whole image at some stage as its a candyland style and really cute. I did a bit of inking and stamping to give the card a shabby chic look. 

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout September, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! The Aussie Dollar is cheap right now so it's the perfect time to grab bargains.
