First EVER..

..Simply Sassy Image/Sugar Nellie Image (Q: WHAT BRAND ARE THESE STAMPS? I'M SO CONFUSED, HELP ME OUT HERE?! Do you call her a Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Image.. or what?!).. I have ever bought and inked up. LOVE HER!! High School Student is her name, and she looks like a nerd - just like me!! I'm going to have another go at colouring her later on and make her look like me with blue glasses and brown hair! :)

She is just gorgeous! I stamped a few of her in one go, as I plan on using her on a lot more creations! Did I mention I think shes gorgeous!? This card is a little different for me - its sort of loads of colours together - it doesn't just follow one colour theme. Little bit of pink, purple, green, blue, the lot! LOL. It sort of works though.. I think. The patterned paper from Crate Paper is just so versatile.

Here is a close up of her. I cut the panel of cardstock she is coloured on into a rectangle, then took a circle punch and cut the corners just to add a little extra interest. I then went around the edges with Old Paper DI.

Here is a close up of those gorgeous Whimsy Stamp Ticket Sentiments - LOVE these! I have used them so much on cards lately. Just perfect. Again, I have gone around the edges with some Old Paper DI.

This is my first EVER card using Wild Orchid Crafts paper roses too!! LOVE them. Almost as much as I love this stamp!! LOL. I manage to put a purple, lilac and blue rose on this card. Like I said before.. mad colour for this card - not my usual thing. But, Be Bold, Be Brave!! LOL.
