Hats, Shoe's and Handbags, oh my!

Here's a little card I made to 'get my mojo' motivated! I was doing my Quirky DT card over the weekend... and had these papers I really wanted to use... hats, bags, shoes to go with the digi I'd just coloured, but, obviously, the yellow and red coloured digi (Sunday's post) and these blue and pink papers just didn't go!
Then I remembered I had some Lili of The Valley images, which came free with PaperCraft Inspirations last month. (20 images!)
Don't you just love Lily of The Valley images!? The making of this card just came together so easily!
And guess what?!? I didn't use my ProMarkers, no! I used some watercolour pencils I bought from a pound shop ages ago, (but I must get some better ones!!) and!!! I just used one colour, with a pastel blue ProMarker to go around the edges and to touch up the beads and socks.
I've also cut the card down a little, so it isn't square, and to make sure the papers fit.

The inside I've left blank at the moment but I will probably layer it up a little more when I get some more red Bazzil card!
No one has it near me unless I drive miles!! (I guess it would be cheaper on line!)
I have made a sentiment ready to go on the front but it's not fixed yet and I couldn't decide what font to use, or where to put it!! What d'you think?? Sticking out of the side or tucked in behind the image?

The fonts are both freebies. This first one is called 'Pea kevinandamanda Funky' and you can download it only from HERE

And the second font is called 'A Red Bucket' and you can also only download it from the same place HERE (A good place to bookmark for scrap booking fonts!) Also always on my sidebar.

I've used a matching paper inside, which has the shoes and handbags in stripes matted over the last of my red Bazzil card.

Freebie Papers The Shoe/handbag papers are from Craft's Beautiful Magazine, issue 225. You can still download them HERE (you will have to login, make up a cool name and look in on the forum too! Stay a while there's other papers to find)
The blue gingham papers are also a freebie from Activity Village (always on my side bar) This link will lead you to all 'Dark, Pastel, and Brights', gingham papers (I used the small pastel blue here)
I wasn't sure the gingham would go at first, but I think they look okay now. The flowers were cut out using an Xcut punch, which was one of the very first punches I ever bought. Never got on with it from day one. It's never cut and always tears, or jams but I do love the shape of the flowers. The packet was damaged when I bought it, so the price had been reduced. At least by using gingham, the flowers have a bit of a ragged material look about them, but they are paper.
Other punches used were Nestabilities large deckled rectangle, Martha Steward fern and lace punches. (and counting the sentiment, Woodware and Crafts Too scalloped edged Oval)
I've added Stickles glitter to the papers and the flower on the hat, added a ballerina charm and used red Bazzil card for the layering. I've also used blue and white eyelash wool and the thin ribbon? Weeelll, believe or not, came from a new red top I treated myself to! That's it for now, thank's for stopping by!
