Alice.

I have just completed a card swap where we had to send out two cards to our partners that had something on the front beginning with the letter A.  My cards have been received by my partner in Australia so I am free to show them to you. This is the first one.
A is for Alice.
The base is red and blue cardstock layered up. The letter frame is left over from a previous project and is die cut using Sizzix Framelits 657905.The paper for it  came as a freebie in a magazine originally.  Alice is a digi freebie from here. The letter A was in my stash and came from a blogging friend in America. Image has been coloured using Distress Markers and pearlescent chalks.

This card is lovely. You've colored this sweet image so well, and I like the touch of the narrow red frame, it picks up the red details of her apron so beautifully. I came over from MIM to visit.
