Autumn Fall Girl Reading

Good morning all.  We have started a new challenge at Crafty Girlz

Challenge No 7 has a theme of 
Anything Goes / with a twist of Bewitched

I have used a digi from Star Stampz called 'Autumn Fall Girl Reading'.

After printing coloured her using my copic marker pens.  I die cut the image and mat using some spellbinders dies.

I am loving 7x7 cards at the moment, as you will probably have realised if you visit often.  They just seem to be a really nice size.  

I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than my 7x7 and pricked around the edges in true Sue Wilson style.  I then matted a piece of orange pearlescent card followed by a smaller piece of white card.  The white card I have embossed using an A4 folder called 'falling leaves'.  Both the orange pearlescent and the white embossed card I have distressed slightly around the edges.

For my birthday my darling hubby treated me to a Sapphire.  Now I have to admit when this machine came out I was sceptical and just did not get why I would want a die cut machine that small.   I do get why now, I use lots of flowers and I also personalise cards when I do orders and I found myself using an A4 cutting mat to cut out a centimetre alphabet because I needed two n's.  Then I realised why I needed a Sapphire.  

My flowers on this card are from Tattered Lace and were a present from my dear friend Wendy and yes, you guessed it, I used my new Sapphire,  Absolute heaven, it sits on my glass mat, right next to me and is lovely.  'Sapphy' worked really hard this afternoon.
