Sepia Sunbonnet!

Hi Everyone

Its time for Mid Month Inspiration over at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog

The Theme for this fortnight is Bingo and here is the Bingo Board.  You can choose any 3 things in a line either across, down or diagonally and don't forget the Sentiment!

My Line is across the middle (Ribbon, Digi, Flowers)  Please come on over and play along with us there is still plenty of time!  
We are being sponsored this time by My Artistic Adventures who produce printable collage sheets.  Unfortunately I was unable to use one of their fabulous sheets as my Printer cannot cope with printing anything colour.  It's really old and I just end up with lines all over the image.  It copes nicely with black and white outlines so I am ok for Digi Stamps lol.

As our sponsor produces mostly vintage style sheets I decided to try and keep my card along the same lines so I went for a bit of Sepia Colouring.  The Image I used is from Bugaboo and is called  Fancy Sunbonnet - Christmas Stuff.  I coloured up a different version of this cutie a couple of weeks ago, I love these images.  I coloured the Image using ProMarkers and then cut her using a Spellbinders Grand Oval Die and layered her onto some Bazzill Fawn.  The Card Blank is a 7" Square Scallop and My Base/Frame Layer is Bazzill Basics Fawn.  The Patterned Paper is from Lili of the Valley's Krafty Christmas Paper Pad.  I added a Brown Grosgrain Ribbon and Hand Tied the Bow. The sentiment is from Stampingallday.  I cut the Poinsettia's using Robert Addams Poinsettia Die.  To finish I added Pearl and Clear Gems.

  10. Hey Lisa - this card is so beautifully put together! I love that it is monochromatic in the wonderful vintage browns - that wonderful deep chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon is the perfect choice for the softer browns you have used! And I love the little tiny Poinsettias in the two shades of brown - what a great element to add to this design. Well done Lisa!
