Sugar Nellie - Feed The Birds

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Well I've literally just come back from my fab holiday in Majorca - Puerto Pollenca to be exact. My hubbie and I had a brilliant time relaxing in the sun and of course swimming in the sea. It was just fabulous being able to colour away and whilst listening to my music whilst staring at the bliss.  
Anyhoo, it's Wednesday and Sugar Nellie day, and my turn to share a card with you.  So this week I thought I would make something another girly and autumnal for you. This gorgeous 'All Dressed Up' stamp is called 'Feed the Birds' and I thought it had touch of autumn about it - she's available as a digital stamp from Funkykits.  I just think she's so cute and I love the little squirrel, there's more of the 'All Dressed Up' digital stamps available to download in store. 

Here's What I Did
I used a 6" x 6" scallop card blank and matted it with pretty blue patterned paper. I printed my image directly onto my colouring cardstock and I coloured it with Copic Markers, to add a little background I added various sized dots. I then die cut 2 frames from blue and pink card using several square dies and layered them up on the card base. The coloured topper was inserted inside the frame. 

Using the left over squares from the frames I adhered some doubled sided sticky paper to them and die cut some skeleton leaves. I peeled off the backing paper and added some crystal glitter - these were added to my frames as embellishments.

To finish off I added a few gems and a touch of glitter.
