Little Flower Girl

Hello All!

I'm back from all of our family gatherings and the weekend wedding festivities. We had a great time visiting with family and friends and celebrating my brother's marriage. Now we're in recovery mode, trying to get things back to normal.

I did find time to take out my stamping stuff and got to work today creating. It felt great to stamp! I also placed an order for new Stampin' Up! goodies, but while I wait, I decided to work with other images.

This is one card I made using images my good friend Jo sent to me recently. I just love this sweet little girl, she's a Sugar Nellie.

I colored her in using watercolor wonder crayons and an aquapainter. Then highlighted areas with the white gel pen. The cardstock colors are Rose Red, Night of Navy, So Saffron, and Always Artichoke. The embellishments are pearls, taffeta ribbon, grosgrain ribbon, and styled silver hodgepodge. I also embossed the Saffron layer with the flower pattern and my Cuttle Bug.

Thanks for looking today! I hope to have some time in the next couple of days to visit you too! Happy Stamping!! :)
