Pretty in Pink

I've had this lovely digi called Big Ida on my computer for a wee while now.  She was a freebie but I can't remember where from, if she's yours please let me know so I can add a link!  She was a pleasure to colour with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  She reminds me of my teen self (a long time ago!) with her Doc Martin's, leggings and scarf, so I coloured her with dark hair like mine.
The papers and pink cardstock are all Papermania Capsule Collection in Red Hot and the lace border punch is my favourite Martha Stewart one (again!).  All the edges have been distressed with my Tim Holtz tool.
The flowers were made with Nellie Snellen and Woodware punches using patterned paper with pearls for centres.
The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley stamp set, I really like the words of this one.  It says, "Believe That You are Wonderful", I think so many people need reminding!
Some pink lace and some pearls are the finishing touches.
Edited to add - you can download her free from -
