Having a spring break!!!

As you may be able to tell from previous posts i'm a little bit of a humbug when it comes to christmas...
So when my brand spanking New Release MABEL'S arrived it really brightened my day... This one in particular is just the cutest ever
It's called 'Nature's Little Helper' and is 1 of 3 new mabels released today @ The Artistic Stamper
I coloured the image by lifting ink straight from my versa colour mini cube pads with a waterbrush.. which worked ok.. gives quite a nice creamy watercolour finish, and it made a nice change from my usual copics.
I made my own background paper by using the AS Dotty background stamp. I also made my own flowers using the flower power plate and the Mini Lattice stamp.
I used my MS doily lace and SU oval and scalloped oval punches. And finished with several gems to add that little bit of sparkle!
The sketch i used is this weeks Mojo Monday challenge.
Creative Inspirations has a 'Sparkle' theme and
Creative Card Crew is 'Strings Attached'
Thanks for stopping by...
