My Shopping List

Marilynn digi stamp from Limited Runs Stamps
Chameleon Pens
Amy Tan Digi Kit from Serif Craft Artist
Sue Wilson flower and leaf dies
Pink ribbon
Sticker sentiments

I had a lot of trouble picking my digi stamp for this challenge as there are soooooooo many gorgeous ones. 
Marilynn was a delight to work with. 

The thing I like about digi stamps is they are so flexible.  Because part of our theme was printed papers I took Marilynn into serif craft artist and using the cutout studio I removed the white space in her dress,  I then chose a backing paper from Amy Tan digi kit and placed if over my image, sent it to the back and cropped it down and hey presto I had a patterned dress.  

After printing out my image onto copic X-press it smooth card I scanned it into my brother SnC on the direct to cut facility and cut her out.  On this occasion I did not place a seam allowance around the edge. I then coloured the rest of her in using my chameleon pens. I also cut my frame out using the SnC too. 

The layout of the card, I need to admit, is not my sole idea.  I was watching one of the demonstrators on create and craft and got the idea from one of the shows.  

I am so pleased with how this one came out and I do hope you like it too.
