The Stamping Bazaar.. ::Nancy with Bouquet::

Morning everyone, it's my turn to share with you my creation for The Stamping Bazaar INSPIRATION today!! Head on over to The Stamping Bazaar Blog to see the breakdown for the entire week and each DT members creation.

This week I have decided to use Nancy with Bouquet, this little cutie is available from TSB Store in digi format. I have coloured her using PM's and fussy cut her out. Of course. I wanted to paper piece her cardigan, but the Prima paper was too busy for the size. I have layered her upon two die cuts, one has been embossed using the Snow Cap EF.

I have added a lot of faux stitching to this card with both white gel pen and brown fineliner.

Check out the little flower in her hair - come on, how could you not fall for such a face?! I really love Marina's images. They're a dream to colour but they have so much detail at the same time.. perfect. I punched some butterflies using a MS punch from the same Prima patterned paper pack to add a little something extra and balance each side of the card.

I have used a gorgeous mini postage stamp and die from Whimsy stamps - they're sorta shabby chic, right? They're the perfect size to add that little something extra to your card. Finally, some GORGEOUSLY GORGEOUS ribbon from.. you guessed it.. the only place worth buying ribbon from.. The Ribbon Girl!

I think that's about it for now. I'm scheduling this post and it is currently 00:27.. and I gotta be up at 6ish. Yikes!! I'll find some challenges in the morning! Be sure to head on over to Susan's blog to check out her inspiration for today too!!

The weather here today is just horrid!! I've been shopping and bought some little cream jars for some of my.. well.. cream.. like moisturiser and stuff as some of the bottles are totally damaged what with being chucked around in my bag all of the time. I also popped into WHSmith.. what a mistake.. I ended up spending almost £20 on craft and jewellery magazines.. but shhh!! LOL. So I'm off to make some tea and tuck into those!!
