You're not alone

Good evening everyone!  Hope you had a great day.  Mine was long... and stressful!  So my gift to myself tonight was to relax while coloring  a fabulous stamp from Elisabeth Bell it's part of the Belles' n Whistles collection.  Unfortunately the stamp doesn't have it's name on the packing :(  So I have no idea what's it name...

I had such a great time that not only did I color it up but I had time to make a card with it!  And I'm playing for the very 1st time over at Elisabeth bells world challenge for their Lace and pearl challenge!  Well since I had colored an image I thought it was the perfect time to actually make a card for the challenge!  And the theme was just perfect for this sweetie.

I have vowed to myself to use more of my stamps!!!  I purchase them and then they just stay in their packs... so with less DT work coming I will have some more crafty time just that way.

If you want my card you can find it in my Etsy store here.

I used some paper from Kaiser craft - Confetti it was a freebie with my great Quickcards magazine this month!  And it came with some vellum borders so I used one as well.  I added of course some lace and pearls from my stash.   And I just had to add some flowers.  For this card I decided to go with a bit of a Shabby Chic look!  So I distressed the edges of the paper and I used some embossing on the sentiment and the fence.  I used my Nesting rectangles and my nesting eyelet rectangle from Quickuts.  I also used my eyelet circle and large circle from Spellbinder.

Here's a closer look at the stamped image (that came out super clear!!!  sometimes I have trouble with clear stamps but not that time!) that I colored with my copics.  I used a great sentiment from Create with TLC.
Isn't she just adorable?!?   I followed this great sketch that I turned around.
