Well .... drum roll please.....here it is







It is so beautiful, I couldn't let this stamp just sit around!!!
I definately need practice with the watercolouring. (I like to criticise my own work) but i wanted to do something with browns and pinks.
I've used Vintage papers from a kit off QVC, accented with waterproof pigment liner pen and also used my cheap scallop scissors which I think have had their use now.

I heat embossed My Sweet Lili Sarah Kay stamp with Black Versacolour pigment ink, and watercoloured her with ordinary watercolour pencils. Embellished with pink buttons from an old Create and Craft kit and thread from own stash, cerise ribbon from an old QVC kit, sentiment is heat embossed using Melissa Frances Crystal Clear Stamps. Overall I've dusted with brown chalk and edged it also. Hope you like :) and I am open to ideas to do it differently.

This sketch is for the Raspberry Ribbons Blog and anything else it will go with but I'm not sure there is anything left. I might just be too late. :(

Maybe not ABC Challenge E is for Embelishments fits this card perfectly as I'v got a button, then another and two more, Threads from my husbands work that I scrupliously saved when we shut business (he didn't want me to as he saw it as throwaway material), and last of all some posh ribbon! Hope you likey :)

This Thursday- Challenge 8 Bowdacious fits with this card as lon as you have aribbon and bow. I hope that's okay :)
