Well Ol' man winter was up to his old tricks again, yep we got dumped on last night but it wasn't as bad as they had predicted, but still way too much snow for my liking. But unfortunately not enough snow to close the doors at work.  Although hubs had the day off due to school closings.

Enough of the white stuff, lets get on with the card.  Today, I have for you
Tilly the teacup girl.  I tell you, I am just in love with these green bean baby stamps by Ellia.

I stamped Tilly onto some of bella's bestest paper and colored her up using Caran d'ache pencils and copics for the skin tones. After she was cut out with my s/binders I layered her onto some pink bazzill c/s.  DP paper is K & Company called Wild Raspberry. Have had this paper for a long time - kind of forgot about it!.  I used a MS border punch for the white eyelet lace.  Cut a green circle then embossed it using the swiss dot embossing folder.  Added some pink rhinestones to the centers of the white eyelet, mini pearls to the centers of the flowers in her hair and some glitter to the centers of the flowers on the teacup.  Now doesn't that look like I could of whipped this card up quickly, well I gotta tell you it took me a couple of hours just figuring out a layout!  I seem to struggle with that the most. Oh well!

I hope you can join us  for this weeks bellariffic challenge.  If you do get a chance our theme this week is Valentines.  Email your card to Emily by thursday night to be included in this weeks draw for some bella bucks!

What a cutie-pa-tootie. You did an awesome job (as usual) on the colouring. Love the hair especially.
