A Woman's Work!

A woman's work is never done & that goes for this little lady,who is one of the latest additions to the Digi's With Attitude! store this week!

She's called Vacuuming Tween & she's dying to get out with her friends but instead, she's having to clean her room!!!
She's decided to have a bit of fun while doing it & is doing the Hoover Boogie to her favourite old Queen song "I want to break free!" Those of you old enough might remember the video with Freddie Mercury in a dress doing the cleaning!
Which brings me on to this weeks
Challenge#18 over at Digi's With Attitude!
It's a Theme Challenge & is "Anything to do with cleaning!"
 Now you don't have to use a Digi's With Attitude! image but we do like to see what you do with them!
This week we once again have a sponsor!

Robyn's Fetish is offering up 2 paper packs, of the winners choice, from their store! This is of course  in addition to the usual prize of a $10 coupon for the Digi's With Attitude! store.
They very kindly provided the DT with some papers to play with for this challenge too!
The papers are from a collection called Coney Island Summers!
I made my card using a twisted easel base! to which I added  a matt of lightweight green card & then the  green floral paper.
I coloured my image with promarkers to match in with the papers & cut her out on the big shot with my latest nesties. I matted her onto a layer of the green textured paper.

I then added a computer generated sentiment, a ribbon from my stash, a paper flower with a rose at it's centre & a couple of punched flourishes!
 For base of the easel I used the green textured paper.

The stop was once again a computer generated sentiment cut out with another nestie & matted onto the floral paper & lightweight card! 

For balance I added a rose & punched flourishes!
Thank you for looking & I do hope you'll have time to play along! Don't forget to visit the other DT members blogs & comment on their cards too!!!

I have been asked how I made this card and I have to say it was very simple to do!
I took a square card blank, opened it up & scored one half from corner to corner on the diagonal!
I folded over the card & sharpened the fold with a bone folder.
I added the design paper to the base card.
I then took another piece of cardstock the same size as the base card & decorated that with the DPs and my image, flowers etc!
I attached the front to the base & added the sentiment as a stop to retain the card front!
 I hope you can follow these instructions! If you do want any more details just ask!!!
