Hippy Chic B'day

Hippy Chic B'day
Originally uploaded by pajalu (Paula)

Hi everyone,

Just before I tell you all about this (gorgeous) card I want to explain something.

Our dinosaur of a computer has given up the ghost yet again. So it's off being repaired (hopefully). Which means I have been using my phone to take photos & upload them to Flickr. Because of this I haven't been able to "fix" the photos so they look like they should. Hence the crooked shot above. The other thing is I'm currently blogging my cards from Flickr & not from my blog. So not sure how that is going. Thanks for being patient with me ;o).

Hippy Chic is fast becoming one of my fav' Bugaboo digi images lately. I just love this image for some reason. I printed her out (just before my 'puter died) a few weeks ago.  Yesterday I decided to try some colour combos that I have found & pinned on Pinterest here.  I tried some of the colour combo's that Alice used on this card.  I loved the colour of Gadget girl's hair. I didn't have all the colours that Alice used so improvised & I think that it turned out well.  I also used TSOT's latest sketch here.

Thanks for stopping by today & happy crafting everyone xoxoxo

Love the cards. Thanks for letting us know you are on Flickr, I will have to make sure to stop by there to see what you are up to. I always love seeing what you are up to and every time I stop by I think about doing some cards again not sure why I stopped making them but you inspire me.
