guess who made top 3!!!!

He he!!! I am chuffed to beans to have been chosen in the top 3 at belles n' whistles!!
As I am sure most of you know I adore Elisabeth Bell!!! and I have coveted this prize since I discovered this fab challenge a few weeks ago!!! I won with my penpal card a couple of posts ago!!
So now for something new!!!
I first discovered Elisabeth Bell many years ago through Sugar nellie! and they have never stopped producing great inspirational products ever since! I love the simply adorables, and I have fallen in love with this new little miss, as you can probabley tell from the fact that she stars in my last card!!
I'm really pleased with the way this came out!! especially since I decided to put a little distress ink on the blueish mat because it wasn't the right colour then decided that the image needed a little distressing to match, then I decided it was too distressed and nearly binned it!! I decided in the end I would have to take it all the way distress wise! (if that makes sense!!) and voila!!
I made an easel card!  I coloured the image with my copics, the distress inks are brushed cordroy and frayed burlap, the design paper is K&Co lifes journey, the flowers are wild orchid, swirls and leaves do-hickeys , lace is prima and sentiment is LOTV phew I think thats it!!
The challenges I would like to enter are:
Wild orchid challenge - white + 2 (blue and brown) plus roses
Stamptacular - at least 5 layers
Well thats all folks!! thankyou so much for popping by!! hope you have a great weekend!
