What A Diva

I didn't think that I would have this card up to show you today. It wasn't that I hadn't finished it, I had, but I had not photographed it until moments ago.

Elaine sent me some beautiful My Mind's Eye papers Meadowlark Dawn to try from Quixotic Paperie and the shabby chic black and off-white colour scheme just shouted a simple colour combination with a highlight colour to me and turquoise is sooo one of my favourite colours!

Thought the colours work perfectly with this little Diva which is one of Mo Manning's lovely illustrations available as a rubber stamp at Quixotic Paperie.


I've used some flat backed pearls, some that I've coloured with my Copic pens, and a large pin with a pin cap to embellish the card.


Hope you are having a good Diva tantrum day!
Kim
