A combo with Doraline

doraline1topMy first DT kit arrived from Stephanie of Motivet Stamps, isn't Doraline just the sweetest! I loved colouring her in too. The Stampin Up papers were perfect for this stamp, fun and girlie - check out all that hot pink!!
doraline1front
I'm entering this card in two challenges - Dutch Dare which is a fab sketch, and Secret Crafter which is to use flowers on your card - now this theme suits me perfectly !! Lots of flowers all made with punches. Not much else to say about the card apart from I had such fun making it. I’m not keen on how I did the sentiment on the front, it looks dirty rather than light blue – I used the wrong ink on the solid stamp, typical!

A different angle to show the flowers and those gorge heavy daisy spacers. The pattern on the blue scalloped layer I did by running a Stampin Up wheel over the blue C/S with Bashful Blue ink (also SU)doraline1side
I stamped and coloured the little bird again to use as a little cameo on the inside.
