What a great card! I've made a few cards with Little Goth Girl and I've always coloured her hair black (it just seemed more gothy - lol), but I like her hair a different colour! Thank you so much for playing along at Creative Card Crew!

As soon as I saw this fabby card I thought that is unusual for you not having any patterned papers now I know why. It looks great and I love the new folders. Great colour choice too.
