Dolly by Elizabeth Bell



A very happy Thursday to everyone! I hope that your week is going well no matter where you are!!

My card today is a special request of Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design using one of her store's exclusive stamp lines. This stamp is designed by Elizabeth Bell and is named Dolly. I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Challenge blog which is such an interesting site. If you are not familiar with it, I would like to urge you to check it out!!

I used Bazzill CS for the card base, Real Red and Glorious Green SU CS for the matting, and all the DP is from the Victorian Romance Paperblock by Creamotion. I also used FlowerSoft, gingham ribbon, mulberry flowers, Kaiser pearls, MS Loop border and corner punches and MS Picket Fence punch. The image was colored with Copics.

The inside is more of the same with the exception of a darling little teapot charm from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie.

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening...When next you visit, I will be back with my sweet little Maggies....they miss me and I miss them!! Have a wonderful rest of the week...Hugs for each of you!!!
