Through The Looking Glass

Soooo, tonight I would like to share with you a quick card I made tonight.  This is for a colleague's birthday on Saturday.  I don't think she knows my blog exists (although she is aware of my craft geekness), so I think I am safe to post it now.

If I do say so myself, I really like this card.

It is made using an LOTV die-cut.  I love this little girl admiring herself in the mirror, but what really sold it to me is the shoes.  We both have a love of shoes, and I always tell her that she needs  to grow her feet so that her shoes would fit me (she's a 4/5, I'm a 6/7), so this image just made me think of what she would look like in my shoes.

Anyway, as usual I am digressing.

All papers are from a Fabrications paper pack I got a few issues back with Cardmaking & Papercraft.  I love this paper pack and I am forever looking for excuses to use it.  I think of it as my Indian Summer paper pack, because all the colours are so rich and just scream 'Bollywood' at me.  I think the rich colours also fit in well with an autumn theme.  Anyway, I used three papers from the pack.  I love the colour of the bluey-turquoise one and the cream one with the red and orange flowers is my favourite from the pack.  The piece used on here is a scrap left over from a previous card and just fit perfectly diagonally, so I decided to use that.  In fact, I haven't had to cut a single piece of paper to make  this card.

I coloured a silver 'Happy Birthday' peel off using a burnt orange promaker to get the bronze effect and added t his to the image.  I then stuck three die-cut flowers in the corner.  I think these were from a Christmas flower pack last year.  I finished the flower with a yellow gem.

To finish the card, I then put various sized blue and yellow gems around the card.

I want to enter this card into the following challenges (you may see a theme this week with the challenges out there!):
