Bellariffic Friday - Welcome Sue!

We have a new employee starting at work on Monday and I wanted to welcome her with a card.  The Bellariffic Friday challenge this week was a sketch from Lindabella and it was perfect for my card.

I used Execubella from Stamping Bella and tried a little sewing again.  I coloured her with copics.  The paper is My Mind's Eye Deena's Penny Lane and I don't think I can scrape any more scraps out of these 12 x 12 papers - I loved them.  I stamped the plant and the lampshade again and paper pieced them....yikes that lampshade was tiny!  I shined up her shoes with a black glaze pen - oh to be able to wear heels like that!  A Bella Dot in each corner, some sponging to soften the white and it was done.

I hope she likes her card.  Welcome Sue!

Cheerio.....Leslie
