Little Girls - Swing Time

It's another Lili of the Valley card today...this image is card 'Little Girls - Swing Time'. I followed the sketch from Truly Scrumptious, and have included the optional extra of 'Hidden Messages' on a pull-out tag behind the image. I've also included the themes of a couple of other challenges: Stamp with Fun - 'Friends'; and Totally Gorjuss 'In Stitches'. The papers are by PinkPaislee (from the '365 Degrees' pad)...and they were distressed around the edges, before I added some faux stitching. The flowers are a mixture of Poppicrafts, Prima & Wild Orchid Crafts, and the pearl brad is by Papermania.


Here's a view showing the tag with my hidden message (sentiment stamp from the CCSR by Papermania), which I decorated using some Whiff of Joy swirl stamps:


This card is going to my partner for this month's friendship card swap on the Docrafts forum.

If you haven't already entered...I have candy here.
