Books and Bedhead.....

Evening Peeps!!
I thought I would have another go with a doily tonight and this is the result of my playing!!! :) I just couldn't resist printing out the stunning Books and Bedhead from Krista, I think she is completely adorable...and just incase you haven't played along yet, don't forget our challenge over on the Saturated Canary blog is 'Doilies'.
I have to say I am getting oodles of help in how to use these cool paper cakey things on a card from all the gorgeous entries we have had so far!!....I still have a long way to go though me thinks.

She is coloured up with promarkers and then I masked her to stamp the words on, I love this texty stamp, its awesome!! I distress inked the edges (...of everything :) !!!) with some teadye distress ink and added a little stitchy stamp to the edges of the pink paper.
The papers are some HOTP freebie ones from a crafty mag but ooooh I so need them, they are just my kinda papers!

I decided to add some little roses and fronds too, not sure why but they were sitting on my desk left over from another make and kinda spoke to me in a use me kinda voice.....:)

Right I must get my dopey little self to bed, I am so sleepy my eyes feel scratchy!!
huge hugs Lou xxxx
