A lady of the night...?!

Hi guys and girlies,
Wow doesn't time fly when you have new crafting goodies to play with, I don't think I have had a night without copic stains on my fingers for the last couple of weeks.
I feel I ought to explain this card a little, the stamp made me think of my friends when we were younger.
I come from Norwich and there is a fab little cobbled area next to the Cathedral called Tombland that has some pubs and restaurants, in the summer there was a fab pub that used to put tables and chairs outside, so the plan was to recreate that memory of sitting outside having a drink on a sunny evening.
However when I finished I thought she looked a bit like a lady sitting outside in Amsterdam if you know what I mean......!
I got the idea for the pop up from the latest magnolia mag and got carried away and did both sides. I will blog the other side in a scheduled post later.
I should warn you a huge list of goodies on this one I got very carried away with my masking !
So here she is

I made the border along the front of the card out of a Heart swirl branch joined together
I also used Cheery Lynn Anastasia border and Cheery Lynn Lace corner 
The copics I used are
Browns: E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Pinks:RV95, RV34, RV32, RV10, RV00, RV000
Greens: G00, G000
Yellows:Y000, Y0000
Skin: E02, E00, E000, E0000 and R20 for blush

Well that's it for this side of the card I hope you like it

Hi Mandy, I saw this in the shop last week, Lou & I just missed you, we think you were just leaving in your van as we pulled up :-(
The card is stunning as always. Love the little scene you've re-created
Hope to catch up soon

Now I've seen this little lady of the night in the flesh and also the reverse which is just beautiful with the magnolia tree.

Good to chat.
