My Shopping list
Sugi's Spring Blossom Dress from Lacy Sunshine Stamps 
Chameleon pens
7x7 plain white base card
purple card
Orion Gemini die and leaf from Sue Wilson
Stamps from Chloe
Pastel pink embossing powder from cosmic shimmer
Pearl drops from Nuvo Tonic
  •  As usual folks I began by printing out my image onto Copic X-Press It Smooth Blending Card which I purchased from Sir Stampalot.
  • I coloured her in using chameleon pens, direct to cut her using Charlie (my BSC) with a 1mm seam allowance.  I also cut a mat in purple using a 3mm seam allowance.  This was done before deleting the image from the machine just change your card over and re cut upping the seam allowance.
  • I matted a piece of purple card onto my white 7x7 base card followed by some white pearlescent card which I die cut using the orion Gemini die from Sue Wilson.
  • I stamped my flowers out using versamark ink pad and cosmic shimmer pastel pink embossing powder.  The stamp was from the small flower set from Stamps by Chloe. I then fussy cut them out too.
  • After die cutting some leaves from Sue Wilsons leaf die I assembled my card and finished it off by putting some pearl drops in the corner using Nuvo Tonic pearl white drops.
I have really enjoyed working with this image and she would be so useful for lots of themes from bridesmaid to wedding to prom queen.
