how old?

Quick post today with a card inspired by the Pinterest Inspired Challenge. Don't know exactly why, but this image totally caught my attention. The colors are not "mine" although they work fabulously together in the image. I am not a fashionista, so it can't be that. Maybe there's something about her pose... Maybe it's the doodling on the skirt...

This older stamp came to mind. Gooseneck from Stampotique. Cool, isn't she?

And thanks to Klartext Kartengruß I've got a cheeky sentiment to match. "How old?" she asks disbelievingly ;)

I had such fun coloring her stockings and shoes with Copics. Gave her crystal blue eyes too. She needed something to stand on, so a strip of washi from MME Nob Hill joined my card.

I'm going over to Seize the Birthday with this card. No toppings included.

And squeaking in at AAA Cards.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy the weekend. DH and I are in Hamburg this weekend. It's all about baking Christmas cookies for me when we get home... But there's another card for you tomorrow. Same inspiration!


  1. Awesome approach Maria ! I still have to figure this one out, but I also LOVE the inspiration!

  2. Love your take on the inspiration photos - just black and white with that pop of colour in the stockings. Cheeky sentiment. Xx

  3. Fun and striking image and loving the pop of colour along the base of the card.
