Garden Girl Carnation

Hello lovely people,

It's Friday so it must be time for me to share my latest Dies to Die For DT card!

Today's temptation comes in the shape of one of the new Stamping Bella images.  I treated myself to a few, having spent ages whittling down my wish list to a size that my credit card could handle!

Bold red and black layered card with Tiny Townie Garden Girl Carnation by Stamping Bella

This is my first purchase of one of the gorgeous little garden girls and although I was tempted to use pink, I decided to go with red.

I know red markers can be a bit 'bleedy' but I love colouring in red, although I had to do this image in several sittings to stop me going cross eyed concentrating on all the teeny petal details!


I also coloured this before picking papers which is not like me at all, but I found some lovely bold papers to match and decided on a clean layered design...but with LOTS of stitching!
