Back with a Bella...

Love this beautiful stamp from Stamping Bella.  I've used her so many times.  This is Little Birdie Jane by Jane Davenport.... and yes I'm still in my "brown mood".  

It's all about the "E" colour Copics for me lately, but then I usually stick close to the earth tones.  I brightened it up with pale blue patterned paper from Basic Grey (gypsy)... and of course some glitter...

(I wish I had gone a little heavier with the glitter now.)  Oh and for once I haven't finished the inside - just couldn't make my mind up what I wanted to do.  This stamp comes with a sentiment "a little birdie told me", but I may just keep this as a blank notecard.  Either way, craft room light is out for tonight...(and so is mine).

I did the border on either side of Little Birdie Jane with the MFT dizzie border die & just cut it in half to layer behind the center piece.

You've done it again. You've outdone yourself, Carla. Love, Love, Love the distressing, the random zig zag sewing and those marvelous rolled flowers. Sigh....
