ABC Challenge - O is for...

Our challenge for you this fortnight on the ABC Challenge is:

'O is for One Paper'

Now, for a paper addict like me...this was tough...but the paper I used (My Mind's Eye 'Penny Lane') is double sided...which made it a little easier! lol
I coloured the Gorjuss Girl image ('Poppy Fields' by Sugar Nellie) with watercolour pencils, to match the lovely 'spring' colours of the paper. The sentiment is by Cuddly Buddly, and the flower (just seen behind the sentiment) and ribbon are from Poppicrafts. I distressed the edges, and added the faux stitching using a Cutterbee Bug and white gel pen.

Don't forget to check out the cards by the rest of the ABC Challenge DT.
