Diva!

What a change in the temperatures! Yesterday was a cold and grey day and although the sun has shone again today and I've got all my washing dry it's a lot colder than earlier in the week when I managed to fall asleep in the glorious warm sunshine and burn my face!

Here's another from the 'use up the coloured images' pile. 
A fab image from the gloriously talented Mo Manning who always manages to capture just the right facial expressions - she just makes me smile. I have coloured her with promarkers and added some black glamour dust on her pearl necklace and earrings after cutting her out with a nestie  and then sitched her onto two layers of scalloped nesties in pink and black cardstock.
The spotty backing paper and pink/black organza ribbon are from my stash and I cut a single 'droplet' from a length of black lace, popped a pink pearl in the centre and attached it to a length of the ribbon.  
The black edging is a Martha Stewart punch. 
Added some flowers,a couple of die cut flourishes and some more pink pearls. The sentiment was a freebie from TLC and I played about with it to alter the colour then stitched it onto a black scalloped circle. 

Inside I used some pink/white paper from Craftwork card as the base and another nestie die to make a blank for the greeting.
