Pretty Miss India

Welcome to the last Challenge at the Crafting Cafe and the theme is 
Your favourite things of 2014.

I've used 2 or 3 of my favourite things on this card so it was quite fun to do.

Firstly I have coloured in the image with my polychromos pencils. Although I have had them for quite a while I have only relly got back to using them this year and I have really enjoyed that. The image is a Besties.

Some of my favourite colours are oranges and golds, warm autumn colours I have used for the background.

Then some very pretty embelishments. A punched border in gold, a tassled brocade trim, some sequined shapes and a lovely bow with a metal flower in the centre. They looked very Indian type decoration and perfect to complete this card. I hope you like it too.
