...and now for something completey different!

Hi folks!
Well, well, well...what have we here? Something completely different! My friend Isabelle Norris recently celebrated her 40th birthday and I thought I would surprise her with a more 'Artsy' card as I know this style is more to her taste. I am thrilled to report that she loved the card :o) and ,yes, it was totally unexpected.
I started writing down how I created the card but it was turning into a bit of an essay. So I have deleted it and will just let you enjoy....
I hope you will leave a comment as it's something I haven't tried before. Would love to know what you think.
Ciao for now!

Oh wow Sandra, this card is amazing and I'm not surprised it was so well received. Your little image reminds me of the bolsa wood mannequinns that had split pins so you could more their limbs around, I loved playing with these at school....I also love the fact that you have paper pieced this image, its brilliant :) Donna x
