Leyla


It's new challenge day at A Gem of a Challenge and here is my DT card for the theme of your favourite colour combo. I have several favourites but I do love purple and as I also love to use kraft decided on that colour combo as it really suited my image. I knew I wanted to use one of the vintage girls and was astonished to find this one in my file as I have never used her before!
Image - Pink Gem Layla
Medium - Copics
Papers - First Edition Mulberry Kisses
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Die - Joy vintage flourishes (another new purchase at Ally Pally)
Wooden butterfly - Hobbycraft

Challenges
As you like it Favourite animal (I love cats, they are so independent yet so sweet and loving) 
Dream Valley all creatures great and small 
Double D April showers bring May flowers
Simon Says anything goes

Up early today to sell at a craft fair. They only do 3 a year and all the products are handmade. I did this one for the first time last November and did really well so it will be interesting to see how today's compares.
