Sweet as Roses

The challenge this week at
is sponsored by

We would love to see you over there.
As always the theme is Anything goes.

I have chosen to use 
1920's Winter Abby image for my card.
Another Gate Fold but vertical this time.
I never tire of making this card shape
as they always come out looking completely different. 

Here is the card fully closed.
I have used roses and feathers from my stash
to decorate the front of the card.
Ribbon was also from stash.
Lacy design paper is Summer Ladies
by Nancy Watt a magazine freebie.

Card opened.
I have used promarkers for the image along with a silver gel pen.
The design paper on the pink card is by Funky Hand
called Hearts and Flowers a digi purchase from yr's ago.
The other paper is from my stash with unfortunately  no name .
Sentiment was created in word and printed out.
Here is a close up showing the lovely shimmer that the silver pen gives.
I especially like it on her fur ruffs.

Awesome floral bouquet and I love it on the gate fold as you've done it with the framing. Some super coloring on the dressed up Missy, and you're right, the silver pen does add lots of glam to an already lovely outfit. She's ready to go out & do the town! TFS & Have a great week.Hugs
