Sweet Stampin - Say It With Flowers

Hellooooo, well it's that time of the month again ---- it's Sweet Stampin' time.

Wow, I've been sat here crafting with all the windows open listening to all the birds tweeting away - it's been a beautiful day. So beautiful day hence 'wash day' :) basically if it stood still long enough it went in my washing machine and then hung on the line. Obviously the downside to this is the dreaded ironing, which I hate btw.  Apparently here this week it's going to be awful - rain and more rain, but as we know the weather peeps often sometimes get it wrong.  lol

Here's What I did
Here's how I made my cute girly card. I cut down a 5" x7" pre-scored card base slightly and took the top corners off to make a tag card, then echoed this with the pretty LOTV paper (I inked around the edges before adding it the card base). The pretty border was made using a Tonic punch and I added a paper ribbon strip to compliment her dress.  The flower was die cut using the same colour card stock as the border and to give it a lift I glued die cut lime green glitter card leaves underneath.

The Prima girl was stamped, coloured and cut out, as was her dress from again pretty co-ordinating LOTV paper, she was added to the card using foam tape. To finish I glued a ribbon in place and printed off my sentiments which were cut out in random shapes, inked and placed around her. I have to say I love, love, love these Prima stamps they're so girly, and up to now I've made quite a few cards using her and her friends - they're just so versatile!

Here's everything I used:

Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11 / Hair - YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13, E99 / Dress - V02, V04
