Girl with a rose...

Thanks to Sally with her Scallywags blog for introducing me to Birdie Brown digital stamps - I headed straight over to Birdie's Etsy shop and bought 2 images, but I had such a tough time deciding that I know I'll be back for more!

This is my first card using 'Girl with a rose' - how cute is this little sweetie?

The image is coloured with Flexmarkers & Promarkers, and I've added some faux stitching around the edge. One day I'll try real stitching on my cards - it would be quicker than the fake stuff!

The background papers are both from digikits from Sweet Shoppe Designs - the blue is from 'Blooming' by Jady Day Studio, and the green is from 'Her Name is Lola' by Libby Pritchett.

I've added some buttons that I found lurking forgotten in a drawer, from the My Minds Eye 'Bloom & Grow'  collection. I coloured the green button with a Promarker as the original green was too pale.

I'm entering this in the Cutie Pie challenge - real or faux stitching
One Stitch at a Time - stitch it
and By the Cute and Girly - use buttons

Thanks for looking!
