Who Am I !

And more to the point where have i been?... 
Sorry for being a bad blogger this past week, I actually went to visit my parents in london while i have the opportunity before i have a possible knee operation. I had a nice time, though didn't get out much.. only for one day and that was to meet my good friend Alison @ the Tate Modern..
Great company.. Shame about the art!!! but the de-tour to Covent Garden more than made up for it!
¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨¨¨¨¨°º©©º°¨
Now I'm not sure whether my card fits this weeks PDC challenge or not.. 
Think it's on the verge of possible acceptance!! 
It started off using the right colours! {kraft card and pink outfit}
So i'll share it anyways and wait for a slapped wrist if its deemed way off!
I actually stamped onto parchment, then embossed from behind to create the white areas, and coloured the rest with my copics. She's mounted on a sewing pattern motherboard i made with scraps,
and the sentiment was stamped onto an old clothes label i recycled. 
I actually love the colours for this challenge so may just have another go, trying this time to use only the right colours instead of getting carried away!
