A Cheeky Girl


This little lady is for the Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #16.

She is an image I've had on my computer for so long that I've no idea where she came from but I love her to bits!

I made the frame using 2 Cuttlebug  folders and 2 toning colours of Core'dinations cardstock which I sanded lightly to show the core colour. The edges were torn to size and the centre oval was torn with the help of a Whispers layering template. The frame was embellished with little punched hearts, some ribbon and handmade lace from my stash and some tiny pearls in pink and lavender.

The whole was then mounted on a card using foam pads to raise it a little.

The colour is a bit warmer than it looks -- I tried to improve it in PSP but it's not really right, sorry!
