I Like You a Latte!! ABC Challenge Card R is for.........Roses

Wow morning all!
Can you believe that tomorrow is the last day of March! is it just me or is this year just disappearing before our eyes. Anyway, once again it is time for team A from the lovely ABC DT to share their inspiration with you for another fab challenge. This week we have reached the letter 'R' and would love to see your creations using 'Roses'. Also we are being sponsored by the lovely Nicki from Bunny Zoe Crafts so please show your support!

I have chosen to use the gorgeously quirky image from Simply Sassy called 'Love a Latte'. These images are great fun to colour and work really well for teens (and us older girlies who just don't wanna grow up!). The papers are once again from my much loved 'Ella Blue' paper pad by GCD.
I have smothered it with loads of roses which I first spritzed with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and finished everything else with Frayed Burlap DI and faux stitching.

Promarker Colour Recipe:
Skin: Blush, Soft Peach
Hair: Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Umber
Top and Boots: Tea Green, Grey Green
Skirt: Cinnamon, Shale
Stool Legs: Cool Grey 3, 5
Seat: Slate, Cool Grey 4
Mug: Cool Grey 1, 3

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Allsorts - #96 'For a Special Lady'
Charisma Cardz - #12 'Birthday for a Teen'
Craft Your Days Away - #16 'For a Mum or Special Lady'

Well I had better go as I have a lovely class of ladies to teach this morning followed by a very boring and tedious stocktake. Hey ho wish me luck!
Happy crafting!
