All packed and ready to go

I love this Simply Sassy girl from Sugar Nellie and have coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are some new Bo Bunny ones called Timepiece which I bought at The Glitter Pot last Friday. Isn't it lovely using a new paper pad. I have distressed all the edges and used DI Vintage Photo. I used two new Memory Box dies, the umbrella I bought at The Glitter Pot and the landscape from My Crafty Heart. The little postcard is a Pink Gem digi. I doodled round the backing paper and added some hearts to the umbrella. I also used a Viva pearl pen around the image. I'm still getting to grips with using it, of course the fact that some pearl dots are bigger than others is deliberate, lol!
