Card Recipe
Image - Brittney France (Digi My World)
Papers - En Francais Collection (Prima)
Card Base - Kraft Card
Colouring Medium - Prisma Pencils
Pearls - Hobby House

I coloured the lovely Brittney with my Prisma Pencils,  and used Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares as a frame for her, which I distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.  I made the flowers with two punches and popped a dark brown pearl in the centre.  I tried lots of different flowers, but like my last card the frames are so lovely you don't want to defer to much from them.  The paper was very busy too so didn't need too much embellishment. It still took me all day to decide though lol!!
