Pretty Payton

I went a bit crazy with the new release from Stamping Bella and Payton was just too cute to pass up.  I think it was her hair that did it for me!  I loved this card that Jody made and copied her layout.

I stamped Payton in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with copics.

The pattern paper is retired SU and the rest is SU Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal and Regal Rose.  I knew I wanted to paper piece her dress and hair bow but when I did it looked a bit too plain so I ran it through the BigShot with my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I managed to keep a fairly straight line when sewing and added some brown brads in the corners and a couple of prima flowers.  I'm really pleased with how her hair turned out - if only my hair had such beautiful highlights!
