I must say I couldn't wait to make a card with this divine image and show you how beautiful she is.  I hope I have done her justice.  She is one of the new digi stamps at Whoopsi Daisy and believe me, the others are just as beautiful.  I have used the pre-coloured version for this card and just added some chalk around her and a touch of glitter on her gorgeous dress.  I wish I had the figure to wear something like that (more like a bell tent for me).  Following the sketch I layered my card with cream and gold cardstock topped with design paper.  I then tied an organza ribbon around it and added a gold and pearl button.  The sentiment has been heat embossed, cut with a nestie and pearls added.  A few large flowers finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
