I am always admiring this style of card on people's blogs so I decided to have a go at making one. The image is one of a new vintage range from Pink Gem and they are adorable. Such great images for practicing colouring hair and skin. I'm quite pleased with the hair and face but the arm colouring could be better. The trouble is if I fiddle too much the layers build up and she would end up looking like she had a suntan.

Image - Pink Gem digi Mollie
Medium - Copics
Papers - free with Scrapbook Magazine, think they may be Prima
Dies - Tim Holtz film strip, Memory Box bird and birdcage, Joy butterfly
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Birdcage charm - The Hobby House
Lace and ribbon from stash

Wild Orchid 3 or more different flowers 
Simon Says Stamp and Show Inspired by (the card shape is inspired by those I have seen on other blogs) Charisma Shaped cards

Marianne...your card is so sweet. I really love the different papers and colors you have used together on this card. All so soft and so pretty together. The little additions of the die cut butterflies, birdcage and filmstrip, delicate flowers and sweet little metal bird cage add interest. Your little digi Mollie is so sweet. You've done a nice job of colorizing her with your Copics. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
