What's Shakin?

Evening all

I made this card the other day on a whim, nice break from Valentine's cards hehe :) Haven't done that for a while! I primarily made it to enter into the Kraftin Kimmie's Facebook Krafty Krop challenge.

I used the image called Fanny, apparently it's really old but I only got it for Christmas, so it's new to me :) I was a waitress in a 50s style diner for 6 or so years, not on rollerskates though as that would've been disastrous! But I have many fond memories of my time there, so this image just needed to be mine :) I paper-pieced her dress and hat.

Image - Kraftin Kimmie
Papers - Maja Design "Summer Crush"
Spellbinders rectangle die
La La Land heart banner
Ribbon and lace from Ribbon Girl
Coloured with Copics
I used Antique Linen Distress Ink and a sponge to colour the paper around the image.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
(I went for hearts)
(I really like kraft with anything really - kraft and pink are perfect together!)

Thanks for looking!
