Sweetest little girl

Good morning my friends.

I hope you are all doing well? Thank you all so kindly for your comments and well wishes. I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffers so my love goes out to you all. Blogging and crafting sure keeps your mind busy lol.

This card I really love. Its another card for my mother. She loves receiving my creations and thought I'd make her this card. Bless her lol. I colour as I find it helps relax you plus I enjoy it. I'm so sorry but I've no idea of the name of this stamp. She is such a cutie though isn't she. It took some time to make this card as I really wanted to get the colours and styles right.

I coloured the stamp with my pro markers and then used a spellbinders labels die to cut and stencil through the die once cut. I then used a corner punch to punch out four corners of some paper which I then stuck the topper but at a jaunty angle. I matted this onto two layers of patterned and gorgeous peach coloured paper. The card blank was already done for me. I covered the front with the patterned paper which I had matted onto the same peachy coloured card. I wrapped some ribbon round the card and used some of that gorgeous lace by the side of it. I then stuck the topper and layers onto the card and used some flowers from my stash round the topper. I finished of with a bow and some gems and some decorative pins and lastly a layered sentiment.

I'm pleased with this card. Some of my cards I don't like and some I do. I have good and bad days at crafting lol..
