The Paper Shelter Challenge #194 Girly

First things first, The Paper Shelter is
looking to add some members to
their DT, please see information below....

Onto this week's challenge.....

For this week's challenge over at The Paper Shelter, it 
was all about making it girly.....

Now girly to me is not always about princesses and tiaras.
I chose to go a little different with this... 
I added some girly elements with the flowers and pearls
but I wanted it to be a bit funky with the skull
and this image..... I LOVE the tattoo on her arm! =)

For this card I chose to use one of the new releases
called Naughty or Nice. She was a dream to ink up.
You can find her here!


Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E74, E77, E79

Pants: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

I was also thinking of one of my BFF's when I 
was making this card, she is kind of badass.
I thought the image was perfect, along with the 
girly stuff and the skull.. =)

I had fun layering all the pieces to this card...
There is a TON of glue.
