Through the window

Today I plucked up the courage to have a go at one of the Daring Cardmakers challenges.
Having seen the standard of work on there it was fairly daunting.
Anyway I jumped in with both feet and this is what I came out with.
Papers are MM Boho Chic-Lauren.
I doodled over the striped paper and added dot and dash lines to the blue and pink papers.
The title is hand written.
Flower stamp is from a See D set and the face stamp is from a set called Collageabilities which I bought from Joanna Sheen when I saw her at a show. It did used to be on the website but haven't seen it there for a while. I think the manufacturer is Sunday International.
All stamping has been done in black Versafine ink.
The dress is a punch by Woodware and this size is the largest. The aperture is 3x3 so that will give you a little idea of the size. Punched once in black card and once in the Boho paper which has then been trimmed back to create an overskirt. The swirl is doodled on by hand.
Thanks for that challenge girls. I don't usually do anything with aperture cards so it made a change and gave me a few ideas for future cards too.
