Sugar Nellie - I Found My Family In a Book

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning everyone! 
So for my Design Team card this bright Wednesday I decided to use one of the gorgeous Gorjuss girl stamps again - I know, I know but I'd already had her coloured up and I had to share her with you, plus she's a little beauty. The stamp is called 'I Found My Family In A Book' and she's available both as a large stamp as well as a mini.  I used distressing ink pads and pens on watercolour card with a splash of glitter. Erm, do you like my attempts at creating little paper dolls as embellies. Lol  
This stamp and lots of others are available to buy from Funkykits.
Here's What I Did
Firstly I matted a 5" x 5" card base with some beautiful green patterned paper. The image was stamped directly onto some watercolour card and die cut it into a rectangle. I coloured the image in with distressing ink pads and pens making sure I kept the colours nice and delicate.

The completed image was then mounted onto a blue mat and a green die cut frame which I added to the card base using foam tape. To finish off I added glitter and a few pearls; to add a little interest I cut out 2 paper dolls from cream card and edged them with a little distressing ink.
