Forever Friends Fortnightly Challenge No 58 - One for the Girls

Hi Everyone

Hurrah - it's a short two weeks at work this week and next as the Easter Holidays are almost here and we have a caravan booked in the New Forest. Please keep everything crossed that the weather warms up a bit and it doesn't rain!

Today sees the start of the new Fortnightly challenge at Forever Friends and this time the theme is .........
One for the Girls and this challenge is sponsored by


For full details on the sponsors and to details on the prizes for the winners of the challenge pop over to our Forever Friends challenge blog.

Here is my card and I've used the Princess Zella image from Saturated Canary. I have been itching to colour this image for a little while but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to colour her hair or the dress well. Ok, here she is......

I really quite like this colour combo together I've not used it before. I did try to add some more flowers but it just didn't look right, but I think its girly enough -well for one of my cards anyway!
I've also made an FF card for this challenge for a friend's birthday that is in a few weeks time and here it is:-
I've used one of the new FF Kraft stamps (and I bought some more from the Range yesterday - Don't tell Brent!!) - Full details below.

I look forward to seeing your comments - don't forget to enter our challenge at Forever Friends
