My Time To Craft 'Aperture' Challenge

Good morning all, I hope you are all well and those that aren't I hope you will be soon. We had a lovely day yesterday celebrating my step dad's and grandson's birthdays. The weather was lovely and we were able to have a bbq.

Anyhow onto today and it is the start of a new challenge over at My Time To Craft and this fortnight we are challenging you to 'Aperture's'. I haven't made an aperture card in ages but actually really enjoyed making this one. I made this card for a little girl who loves to play with her doll's and dresses them all up to have tea party's, so this image was perfect for her. It is called Evania Nursing Boo Boo and is by none other than Elisabeth Bell through the Elphine House store. I used some odd papers from the Papermania Spots & Stripes Pastels Pad and instead of going for my natural choice of pink to make it all girlie I decided to go with pale purples. I meant to add glamour dust to her wings but forgot before I took the photo but I have now added it.

I used a new card stock to stamp onto today which I brought at the Doncaster show I think, Shell Shearer is that right?? I know we brought one each and got them cheaper lol but where was we??? It is Anna Maria Designs and it is lovely to colour on but it doesn't go through my printer so no good for my digi images. I haven't sat and took time to colour in detail with shading in a while and thought I would struggle especially with my fingers still having pins and needles in them but this card stock made it much easier.

Here is the front through the aperture
