Hanglar Girl - SCSC

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great Bank Holiday and soaking up the lovely weather. My card today is for SCSC where there's a great sketch to follow this week by my lovely friend Donna, thanks Donna, I loved the sketch but I totally missed that there's also a colour combination to follow of chocolate orange!!! Luckily I have used a bit of orange and there's some brown colours in the image, so I hope it counts? I've used a cute Hanglar girl which is watercoloured with Distress inks and mounted on orange bazzil card and matted on MME Bloom and grow paper. Edges of the papers are distressed and I've punched one edge with an MS arch punch. Added ribbon, sentiment, button and more ribbon in line with the sketch and stardust stickles. TFL. Chris x

Wowsers! What a gorgeous card, she is such a sweetie. I'm so jealous, so desperate to get my little mitts on some Hanglars like most folk. I love how her scarf and ribbon in her hair shimmers. Just fabulous Chris. Happy Easter. Hugs, Lainy x

This is such a beautiful little card though and I'm so pleased you enjoyed the sketch, I can deffo see a hint of the colour scheme on your card which means it definitely counts :) gorgeous colouring as always and such scrummy papers :) Donna x
