Onto my card I was pleased how it turned out the papers are Smitten by Authentique and of course the little darling of an image is Pure Innocence Happy Mail from MFT.
To start with I cute the stamped image mat to the size I wanted and then run it through the Bricked embossing folder so I would have a brick wall behind my image. Then lightly blended some ink over the it so that the bricks would show up more.
I'm pretty sure I cut the Lavish Branch from Memory Box to fit how I wanted and the flowers are a combination of the tiny flower from Flower Friend and the tiny centre from Bella Bloom.
The fishtail banner using one of the sentiments from the image stamp set.
The I layered the image so you couldn't see the embossing on the image and there's something about Pure Innocence that says paper piece me so that what I did. I also carefully stamped pockets of her dress on a contrast piece of paper so I could get the hearts in the centre of the pockets.


There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog ,,,if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out :-)
