Lady in Red at TioT


Hello, and thanks for calling in, today see the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and our theme this fortnight is 'Lady in Red' 

I need a few girly birthday cards next month, so a great opportunity to use this sassy lady from the Dylusions Couture set, along with some paper piecing for her outfit.  The Eiffel Tower stencil is from Shena Douglas, and few stenciled branches to complete the scene and of course some die cut flowers.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

I am entering this at:
  Allsorts - Ladies and Girls
  Simon Says Monday Challenge - Hand Made Flowers
  Penny Black and More - Anything Goes
  Love to Create - Anything Goes  Mixed Media
  Artistic Stamper - Springtime

That's all for now, have a great day,  I'm on the last lap of the 'tidy' - nice clean drawer units and some work space, one empty drawer and some empty boxes to fill, but only with 'good stuff' - no more rubbish!

Its a gorgeous card Avril, love how you pieced her dress. A beautiful romantic background as well.
I liked the "no more rubbish" phrase, how many times do we say that and keep stuff just in case.
