Flourishes & Diamonds

Hi All,  Hope you've all had a good week, mine has been so busy, but I am trying to make amends now for not being on here all week.

I have started to follow the Make My Monday challenge and the theme this week is Flourises & Diamonds.
I have used the lady from my new Music Hall set by IndigoBlue  and Crafty Individuals Flourish (stamped in Dusty Concord) and masked off the Birthday bit on a Hero Arts sentiment.  The background is Milled Lavender DI brushed onto white cardstock.  I have added lots of Diamonds to the swirls and her neckline - after all, they are a Girls Best Friend!

I am entering this card in:

  Make My Monday - Romance - Flourishes & Diamonds
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Bling It On - Shades of Lilac
  Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes 
  Paperplay - Something Old - Something New (old swirl - new IndigoBlu set)

Thats it for now and thanks for looking.

Avril
