My Fair Lady - Sassy Studio Designs

Can I start by saying welcome to my new follower Laine I always feel honoured when someone decides to follow my blog.
I think I am just about over my bug but have to admit it has taken me 2 days to finish this card and it still needs a middle. Sorry for the quality of the pictures but it has been dark and overcast all day up here.
I have used an image from Sassy Studio Designs 'My Fair Lady' must admit I have had her for a while and think I bought her rather than it being one of the weekly freebies.

She is straight cut and the backing paper is from Papermania. Lace from the Ribbon Girls. Ribbon, gems, feathers and butterfly from my stash. The bottom paper is cut with a MS punch.
Just for a change I haven't used any dies.

She is coloured with Promarkers with silver glitter added for extra bling, just wish it showed more.

As I said earlier the light here was terrible today, must see what I can do with my daylight lamps in future.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks as always for taking the time to look at my blog
