Spring Birthday!

Hello again!

I managed some time in my craft room yesterday and I had coloured up this new LOTV image which I just adore.  LOTV images are becoming more and more my favourite stamps ... I just love them!  This post is a little photo heavy but I don't often have the time to take more than 1 photo so I enjoyed a little more play time with my camera!!

This sweetie is coloured up with my copics and I sponged the background with Stormy Sky distress ink.  The gorgeous papers are from MME So Sophie.  I just love this pinky purple plum colour ... isn't it divine!  I actually even pulled out my sewing machine for this card - I'd forgotten just what a fabulous finishing touch it adds to the card.  Must find more time to do it more!  I haven't followed any particular sketch but everything seemed to fall into place nicely like this.  The doily, ribbon, lace, pearls & flowers are all from stash.  The sentiment is SU! and the button and twine are also from stash.

Here's a view of the finished inside - very simple but elegant.  The embossed butterfly is an SU! embosslits die/embossing folder - love it!  

A side angle view of the card showing some of the dimension and the finished inside too.

A close-up of the coloured image.  Copic colours used are:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27
Clothes: R59, R81, R83, R85
Dog/Dirt: E30, E33, E34, E35, E37
Grass: G63, G67

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges this week:-

Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Ribbon, Buttons & Bows
Paper Sundaes - Sundae Bar (lace, die cuts (nesties circles, butterflies)
Allsorts Challenge - Colour Bingo (Green/Ribbon or Lace/Pink)

Hi Danielle

I love LOTV too - just can't seem to get enough of their stamps - although I must confess I have a pile of their rubber that I have never inked up (me blushing!).

This is a beautiful card with such pretty colours - I love that little dog he looks as though he is smiling!

I hope you had a lovely Easter and I would like to thank you for your lovely comments on my blog.

Be back to see you soon.

Toodle Pip.
