Love Sunnies Summer Girl card (Lemon Shortbread image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have been a bit busy redecorating my home at the moment and school holidays so I haven't had a chance to post my freshly created cards on my blog until now (sitting on my lovely new chaise with my luxuriously warm and cosy blanket). I always seem to find some time to create though.

This gorgeous image comes from Lemon Shortbread and I used some glossy accents on her sunglasses, lips and the hearts. I sparkled her top with some Wink of Stella and doodled some faux red stitching around the image to finish it off. The plaid papers are from Lawn Fawn.
