The Key to Successful Ageing ...

The current Allsorts challenge is 'April Fool or Humorous' and I'm using a great Bugaboo image which had been a magazine freebie supplied by Craftsuprint a few years ago.  I'm also entering the ABC Challenges 'E is for Everything' and the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenges.


Card blank: 8" x 6" white silk
Image: Bugaboo printed image (magazine freebie)
Card: Lilac matt
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Timeless Victorian'
Other: Clear gems

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto lilac card and attached it to the card front.  I cut around the main image and attached it to the card front.  I cut the hair/hat, cake, skirt, shoes and sentiment from another image and decoupaged them.  To finish I added four clear gems to the corners of the sentiment.
