Audrey in Paris at Dies to Die for

Good morning world!  I'm on my hols this week and I'm loving it.  I had a lovely birthday and now I get to spend most of this week crafting away to my heart's content.  Anyway on with my inspirational make for Dies to Die for today, I was going to do another Valentine, as it's Valentine's week, but I thought the card I'm sharing today had a kind of Valentine feel about it even though it isn't a Valentine's card.

I made this card after a conversation with somebody who has become a regular buyer of my cards on Etsy. We discussed a birthday card for her sister, who, she said, loves Audrey Hepburn and Doris Day and adores Paris, pink was also mentioned.  So I've been playing around with a few things with that in mind and here is a kind of Prototype.

I've used Maja Design papers from the Crea Diem collection.  Links to products are as always at the end of the post.

The stamp is called 'Audrey loves her make-up', one of the Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella.  She also comes with a sentiment, which I didn't use here as it's quite large. I've coloured her with Copics:

Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20 for cheeks
Clothes: R81, R83, R85, W5, W3, W1, W0
I did add a little glitter to her too, but it is not showing up AT ALL on the photos :( 

The scrabble letters are from Whimsy, they also do a die to match, but I don't have that so I just hand cut them. The Eiffiel Tower is a La La Land's die. I've also used some Prima bling here.

You can see another LLL die here and the sentiment is from Whimsy, I wanted the matching die for this but it's currently out of stock so I'll have to wait for that one, the sentiment looks pretty good anyway, even cut by hand. As usual I've almost covered my lace, I really do need to do something about that. all other items are from my ever growing stash.

I do hope you enjoyed my share today, I'll be back on Friday with my post for A Creative Romance :) xx
