A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

613 Avenue Create Ch #29

Good Morning everyone - hope you're all happy and well.

It's time for another challenge at 613 Avenue Create and, as always, it's ANYTHING GOES with an optional twist to create and envelope to match your card.  I kinda strayed a little from the envelope as I had no choice than to make a box - as hard as I would've tried, there was no way my card was going to squeeze into an envelope!  

Our sponsors this week are the fabulous RSD and Beansie Doodles

I chose to colour up 'Pepper for Prom' and here she is .... I do apologise as it's quite a picture heavy post today.
How pretty is she!  
I coloured the very pretty Pepper up with Copics using the following:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11  Hair/Shoes:  E43, E41   Dress/Hairband:  YG63, YG67, G21
My background papers are the beautiful Maja Design Vintage Spring Collection from Live & Love Crafts.
The pearl string is from The Hobby House
I fussy cut Pepper out and added 3d foam to give her a bit of dimension.  The die she is layered onto is Ann's Paper Art Stitching Stencil, which I bought from The Art of Craft.  I did start sewing, but, after half an hour and only one swirl and a petal later, I decided it wasn't such a great idea and that a far greater length of time was most definitely needed to complete this gorgeousness LOL ... Oh well, maybe next time ;)
My little floral array consists of roses, cameo, pearl brad, flat backed pearl and pearl flourishes - all of which can be found at The Hobby House.  The ribbon is from my stash and the decoration berries are from Live & Love Crafts.
I created my box and then layered co-ordinating papers.  I printed a smaller version of Pepper onto one of the layers and coloured her dress to make her stand out a bit.
I would like to enter into the following:
