An Elegant Lady!

This is something a bit different for me! I was watching the lovely Julia Watts on Create and Craft this week and saw how she layered all the fabulous Spellbinder dies and thought that I would give it a go. The fabulous NitWit papers from the Fine Linen Collection were perfect for the paper piecing I did on the dress - a relief as I have very painful carpal tunnel in my hands at the moment and colouring is just agony!!

These papers are just scrumptious and the beautiful linen effect is perfect for the card. The idea with buying digi kits is to reduce the amount of paper I have in my craft area because I really don't have a lot of room. The problem is whenever I download a new collection I start printing like a crazy woman! I have no self control!!!

The image is from the Creative Expressions 'Elegant Ladies' stamp set. The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions 'Belle of the Ball' stamp set - which is seriously gorgeous :D I've also used the following dies:
Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles One
Spellbinders Floral Ovals
La Land Land Heart Banner 
Spellbinders Twenty
Marianne Creatables LR0236
It's going to be a busy week; the Health Visitor is coming to see Isis tomorrow and we have Indigo's parents evening on Tuesday. How bad can it be?

Thank you for visiting - it's a relief to know I'm not talking to myself. Big hugs, Jayne xx
