Little Mama...

I was supposed to have this posted a lot earlier than now but I could not get on the internet last night.. It was so frustrating s I didn't know if it was my modem or the server but as it turns out it was my server.. thank goodness!! So I do apologise to my DT.. I really do hate letting people down but sometimes some things are just out of our control!!
 So today it's my turn to post on The Digi Bell's Blog so I have used Little Mama which you can get from Elisabeth Bell's digital collection right HERE!! She is the latest addition to the digital collection and I think she is just gorgeous!!
Little Mama is coloured in with Tria markers. I also added some chalk to the heart on her dress but you can't really see that. I also added it around her!! I decided to try a few new things (for me) on this card, the first being that I partially die cut the image and partly cut it - I followed the tutorial over on the Polka Doodles blog. I also used my new Nottingham border die and used in within the paper rather than adding it as a new element!! I then utilised that to decorate around the image. I also added rhinestones for some bling and sparkle. I added the flowers (inked up the white one's purple) and added the pearls ad I recently bought my first pack of washi tape and had this happy birthday one which was just perfect to finish off the card!! Thanks for stopping by today..
