Sweet Little Gothic Girl

Hey-de-ho me lovelies,

Apologies for being so hit and miss with my blog recently...we seem to have had an endless stream of house guests staying with us (it's been a fab summer though, so not moaning) and what with fitting in work around the school holidays means there hasn't been much time for anything else. I do hope to remedy that soon though and get back into blogging on regular days!

Anyhoo, I'm sharing a card today that I made for Sophie's friend Liv, who turned 14 at the end of June and although it's a very clean and simple design, for once I feel that less is definitely more. I'm so pleased with the way the colours work on this card and the little goth girl is absolutely adorable.

I merged 2 digital images together for this card.  The little goth girl is a pre-coloured image from The Paper Shelter and the fence in the background is a pre-coloured image from Pink Gem Designs.  I have to say, that one of the things I absolutely love about working with digital images, is that they're so versatile and adaptable.

Digital Images: The Paper Shelter (Gothic Girl), Pink Gem Designs (Heart Fence) and Delicious Scraps (Doodled Borders Vol.2)
Card Stock: SU! (Real Red)
Sentiment: DigiStamp Boutique (Happy Birthday Ticket - cropped)

I love this card. The goth girl is fab and she goes perfectly with the fence. It really adds interest rather than just the image on it's own. You have inspired me yet again!
