Seems she forgot all about the Library like she told her old man, now!

  

Evening, all! I hope you've all had at least some sunshine today, we had very wet rain this morning but the evening has been lovely!

It's a long time since I made a card using aTickled Pink image. This is Lil' Fashionette 50's Lilith, isn't she wonderful? I love her sulky expression - perhaps Daddy took the T-bird away!

(It's a Beach Boys song. Also covered by the Carpenters. Whaddaya mean you're too young to remember either of those beat combos?!)

The papers are Bo Bunny Vicki B Collection, they are wonderfully retro! I originally cut the Memory Box circle from the pink paper but it didn't show, so I used the brown card instead and filled in the middle with the paper. The sentiment is by The Greetings Farm. I distressed the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink and put Glossy Accents on the skulls and crossbones.

The ribbon was a pressie from my daughter. The flowers are Wild Orchid, and the leaves are made with a Woodware punch. The pearls are from stash. I'll list the Promarkers at the end.

I hope you all have a great weekend, chaps! Stay dry!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Walnut, Henna, Chestnut, Cinnamon; Lipstick Red, Berry Red, Cardinal Red; Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink; Dusky Pink, Ivory; Cool Grey 2
