Hi, guys, I'm back!

Did any of you watch the tv programme 'The King in the Car Park' about the discovery of Richard III's skeleton? It was fascinating - especially when a forensic reconstruction of his skull was revealed, showing what he looked like!

I'm going back into the past with this card - but not as far as 1485! This is Tickled Pink Fashionette Lil Lolita 50s Lilith

She has such a wonderful sulky expression! I used a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine and distressed with Worn Lipstick while the card was still in the die. The skulls have been glamour-dusted, and I edged the background strips of paper with glamour dust, too, after rounding two corners with my corner punch. (On reflection, I should have made the strips longer.)

Papers are a mix: Nitwits for the striped background, and the strips are from a free Hollie Hobby pack that came with a mag. The twine was also a freebie.

The label is LotV, the shiny dots are Paperchase stickers, and the button is from my button tin.

I'm entering the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge which this time wants to see Red and Pink - and the 'Oldie' is my stamp, which is over a year old!

Thanks for looking, and have a relaxing evening!

love Mags B x

Hi Mags

No .. .. I didn't see the programme (not much tv happening around here at the mo). I hope my DIL saw it. She is one of the people who goes on these sort of digs and she would have loved to have been on this one I am sure.

She works on London ones mostly.

Loving your card .. .. and I agree she does look a bit sulky.

Great layout and colours. My DIL would love that skirt too!!! LOL!!!

Hope you are having a good week.

Love Jules xx
