A little bit of friendship...



Happy Sunday folks...well looks like it's back the the normal Scottish rainy weather!!  So I suppose that means crafting time...lol!!

I sat and coloured this little cutie last night however the dress is not quite the right colour however I think it still looks ok.

So the stamp is from Personal Impressions - A Bluebird's Proposal which I coloured with copics.  The papers are digi papers from The Sweet Shoppe...Oh I love them, they are so my colours!!  I layered each of the papers on to brown card, added some stitching and then also distressed each of the layers.  I added a piece of blue lace under one of the layers. I also added little pearls to each of the corners.  The flourish has been cut with my Magnolia fancy flourish die and the flower is a MFT layered rose...I added a pearl brad through the centre to hold it all together....then added a little ribbon to finish off.

stamp - personal Impressions A Bluebird's Proposal
