For this project I used one of the Mo Manning digital stamps from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Flower girl" and thought this would make a wonderful card for a bridesmaid from the Bride and Groom.

I coloured this image with copics and used my new prisma pencils to darken the folds on the girl's dress and add a subtle tone to her skin.  I masked the girl's face and arms and then sprayed lightly with smooch spritz ink (pearl).

I paper pierced the two opposite corners of the main image and used a fine liner pen to complete the full border.

I kept the colour scheme fairly neutral.  The textured cardstock was from Crafters Companion and the silver mirri from Create and Craft.

I embellished with some petal flowers I had as a free thank you when ordering crafting goodies from America.  The foliage leaves were cut with a Magnolia die and I added ribbon, peel offs and gems to complete.

Hope you like as I wanted a feeling of wedding without full on.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas to you.

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
