Opal the Optimist at Dies to Die for

Happy Tuesday!!  Hope you are all doing well and if you're in the UK I hope you're enjoying the hot weather that we've been having lately.  This is my first post for today, my inspiration for Dies to Die for,  I have another to come later and while you're here, why not enter my Blogversary Candy?!

Today I had a play with one of the delightful Uptown Girls images. This is Opal the Optimist. I coloured her with Inktense pencils. Papers are MME, all inked and hand stitched.

I popped a Cherry Lynn clock behind her, set to 5pm to go with the ticket sentiment.

The bow is made with some lovely soft brown tulle that was a gift from a friend.  The gem is from the Handcrafted Card Company.  The flowers are by Prima. The little hearts are Prima Sugardots. I made a little flag banner stack in the top left corner.

I decorated the inside to complement the front.

Items used:

Well that's it from me, I'll be back later with another make!
