I am so late in posting my card for this weeks challenge at Crafting from the Heart.  Been a difficult week and I had to go away for a couple of days and now I am behind with everything. There is still a few days for you to join in the challenge which is always Anything Goes.

Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up and for my card I have used the image Looking Gorgeous


I have used Spectrum Noir for colouring, the backing paper from my stash, but think it is a Lili of the Valley by Nitwit.
