Like a Crafter Possesed

Hello.  Welcome.  Someone turned the rain on again so I feel no guilt if I spend the day crafting away.  Do you ever read a good book and when you put it down you feel like you are waking up?  That's what's happened with this card!  I picked some stamps I wanted to use and after some intense concentration and fussy cutting discovered that the stamps I was going to use lay un-inked and this Pandoro Girl from the Spring Girls set had appeared instead!!  It's all a bit surreal, but I like the finished project so happy dancing all the way........  

I used PaperArtsy JOFY stamp JM34 and stamped with DI Barn Door, Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick.  I spritzed, too much! too much! and dabbed frantically at the sloppy result and quite like the faded flowers/tinted background effect.  The girl is, as mentioned, from Panduro's Spring Girl set coloured with promarkers.  The sentiment is PaperArtsy from their Bllom set.  I added a couple of pieces of pink organza and some pink ric rak.
