Retro Card...

 When I saw this image on Saturdays Roll Out of Images from Rick St Dennis I just had to get her. She makes me think of Bolly (Alex Drake) in Ashes To Ashes so I decided to do a bit of an '80s Retro Card!!! (Just need My Yummy Gene Hunt to come and whisk me away and I will be a Happy Bunny!!!) 
She is actually called Stella. I went for Neon '80s Style so its a bit bright!!! (Not of course that I can remember the '80s cough cough!!) 
Im sure I actually have earrings a bit like this in my room!!!
