Zei Prom

Good Morning all!
Happy Halloween!
 I hope you are all well on this beautiful Thursday morning!
The weather here is a bit wet & windy but hey ho, we can't complain!
Anyhoo, it's time for me to share my card!

This is an 8x8in card base.
The layout I used was based on a sketch I spotted on one a challenge blog.
Sadly I can't enter their challenge with it as they require you to use one 
of their own images. That said, I do love the layout!
The image I have used is Zei Prom from Just Inklined.
She's just so very cute!

Here's a closer look!
I can see her being used for all sort of occasions!
I coloured her up with Promarkers. 
The edges were distressed using a pair of serrated scissors.
The border punch I used is Papermania!

The papers are by Craftwork Cards, as are the flowers which were die cuts.
I shaped & layered them for some dimension then added
 some ribbon & a little Card Candi centre. Don't you just love that zebra print!
As you can see in this photo, I added a strip of ribbon topped
with some black Jaipur lace from my stash! I also dotted some
Card Candi around.

I've added this photo to show you the dimension on the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my card!
