A Touch of Class.....

Hello... hope you are all well.... huge hugs to those who are not ... I thought I'd show you the card that I made for Alessandra's Birthday...  this lovely lady is from Crafts and Me and is called 'Call Girl' by Hannah Lynn... Ooh you know I never realised what the image was called when I made this card... but anyway... I think my girl has long given up her escort job... she is now a happily married Personal Assistant and has two children and lives in Bowdon, Cheshire..... Winking smile


PAPERS: Prima - 'Almanac
FLOWER (Large): Prima Rose Trim - 'Natural
GEMS: Hero Arts - 'Sunshine Mixed Accents
STICKLES: Glitz - 'Tiara'

all the above are available from My Crafty Heart...


The small flower is Prima 'Tasha' - Caramel and is from Joanna Sheen. I won a voucher over at Delightful Challenges a couple of weeks ago and so I chose these as part of my prize! 

I've used Glitz Tiara Stickles all around the edges of the inner papers... it's a gorgeous minky colour and  it sparkles like crazy!!

The sentiment is a tag from the Prima Almanac papers and I have stamped Happy Birthday onto it... 

I've coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I've tried a different type of blending with this image... it doesn't have as much depth... but I quite like the softness of it and so might have another go... maybe I will improve... I've added a few specks of the Tiara glitter to her eyes.. so they sparkle!! looks pretty in real life... I'm really loving these Hannah Lynn images... so wonderful to colour....

Downton Abbey is back next Sunday.... can't wait... and Strictly Come Dancing is back Saturday... Yay!! just love all the costumes and Razzamatazz... just the thing to cheer you up as the nights are drawing in....

The weather is back to dull and showers here in Manchester... perfect for staying in cosy and crafting!
Thanks for all your lovely comments!
Love and Hugs

Alessandra said...

she is sooooooooooooo so beautiful, Call Girl lives at my house now...okay she still tries to seduce my boyfriend but she has no chance actually...compared to my sheer beauty she looks like a ...hm...well...erm... I'm not saying this ugly word! she looks like Smeagol (or how was that yukie little guy called in these hobbit movies??)...lol...

Ah no, I just love this beautiful card, it came just in time for my Crafts and Me phase LOL! Still have it in my living room with the other cards, but she is in front row (and always glancing at my hubby-to-be), this little bitch!

Hope you feel better!
Hugs, Aless

I'm glad you are feeling a bit better now and are looking forward to the Autumn TV - I always think it is nice when we have a change of TV programmes, the Autumn/Winter selection always seems to be the best.
