Lil Miss Poppy

Hi everyone! I can't believe the week is almost over.  It's flown by so quickly!  And look, I actually made cards this week, lol.

Today I'm sharing with you my first card made with a Belles n' Whistles stamp.  Isn't Lil Miss Poppy so adorable?  I think I've gotten myself hooked on another stamp company, as if I need to feed my obsession even more.  I just couldn't resist, though; just look at this image!  She was so fun to color.  I paired her up with some of the new BasicGrey Oliver papers. Funny thing about these papers - you'd think that they were really boyish; well, some are, but some are also perfect for bright, girly cards just like the one I have below.  I found myself not being able to decide which papers to use. Here's a picture of the Oliver paper pad:

And here's my card:
Stamp: Belles and Whistles Lil Miss Poppy
Coloring Medium: Distress Reinkers with Medium Koi Water Brush
Paper: BasicGrey Oliver paper pad
Accessories: gemstones, Prima flowers, lace, raffia
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Making Memories Paper TrimmerATG adhesive gun

This card is for the following challenges:
  1. Belles 'n Whistles - Lace and Frills 
  2. Paper Sundaes - At least 3 Different Embellishments - lace, flowers, rhinestones
  3. Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Stitching
  4. Stampin' Royalty - Stitching
  5. Card Patterns - Sketch #81
