Bellarific BittyBloom

Happy Bellarific Friday! This week's challenge was two of my favourite and brown...YUM! 

I decided to use the gorgeous Peony BittyBloom image from Stamping Bella...she's soooooooo feminine...just perfect for my vision. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with copics. Then I cut her out with oval Nestabilities. I wanted to keep my layers simple on this card and you'll see that I only used three layers on the white card base. 

The base layer is pink pirouette. I ran it through my Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder. Next I layered some American Crafts Backyard Collection patterned paper, which I picked up at Stamping Bella. I wrapped some chocolate grosgrain ribbon around the base and layered two Primas from my newest packs. A chocolate corduroy brad finishes the flower center. The image needed some sparkle so I added a little Crystal Stickles.

Karen, this image is so darn cute, you didn't need to add a lot to it. Love the crystal stickles though:)) I'm off to find that Xmas card. It must have been the day I was too beat to check my blog follower window. Grandma's getting worn out chasing a 3 year old around all day:))))
