It's a long time since I played with my Sugar Nellie stamps so I thought I would have a play today and this is what I came up with.  Not bad seeing as my mojo has done a bunk. 

I decided to turn the sketch before following it as I thought the panel looked as if it could be a garden wall.  With this thought in mind I embossed the panel with a scroll embossing folder before placing Dolly Pip (coloured with promarkers) on the 'wall'.  I then decided she should have some Spring flowers around her so I die-cut some swirly leaves and added small punched flowers.  Some have pearl centres, others have gems.  The little butterflies have been stamped, coloured with promarkers and Sakura Stardust pen before being cut out.  The sentiment is stamped and to finish off I added a bow to Dolly Pip's hair.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
