Dug out my papermania retro floral paper, not much left mind you and attacked with distress tool also core card and image is a penny black which i stamped when tanmo came to play one time as she has a fetish for pb stamps...lol.

Have used my beloved promarkers to colour her and used the DCWV mat stack and papermania paper 'Amethyst fusion' stack, nesties and stamped the greeting and used my fave stampin up circle and flower punches.flower and gems are from my stash. Having trouble with my blood pressure tabs and need to go on new ones so i  need a kick up the backside to get motivated at the moment but tanmo and angie around sunday so am sure that will help.
