Simply Sassy Spotlights!

When the Simply Sassy head girl Maria asked me to make just one last card for her to showcase I think she knew very well that I could not say no. I love the Simply Sassy range of rubber stamps soooo much!

This is the last of Maria's spotlights for this year and she wanted to make it extra special, so she asked a few ladies who had previously done a spotlight on the blog if they would like to make a card and join in.
Of course we all would!

I really wanted to make a card using my most favourite image..but which one to pick? I have so many favourites! In the end, this little lady from the second release of stamps won the top spot.
The very beautiful Bella Bunting.
( may need to sit down first, embellishment overload again hee hee hee!)

As always, Miss Bella has been coloured with a mix of DI's and SU inks.
I forced myself to cut and use some more of these gorgeous papers - Maja Design 'Fika'.
OK, you know I'm a simple girl so the embellies are always minimal. I started off with a Doo Hickey swirl, a punched flower with a little rose in the middle and a few pearls. But it looked too bare even by my standards so I added the strip of lace...a lot of embellies for me to use on one card!

Thank you for asking me's always a pleasure to get the opportunity to show some love to a Sassy.
Now I'm off to go and visit the Simply Sassy blog myself to see all the other ladies cards...they will be awesome!

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

  3. Such a stunningly gorgeous card, Elaine, as always! I can understand why it would be a bit of a task cutting into those beautiful papers, but they do Bella such justice! Susie x

  4. Hi Elaine
    love the colour combo that you have used, very pretty, (I am sure that I have that paper somewhere), also love the sweet image.
    I had to laugh when I read that you think that you have overload on your em-bellies. Let me assure you, your's are not a scratch on mine, poor Andy had to post a card for me the other day at the post office. On his return home he asked me if I had put bricks in with the card, as it cost him over £8.00 to send it lol.

  12. Now how did I guess that it would be Bella? The lace is a real treat & just lifts the whole beautifully really picking out the pearls.
    Hope that snuffle (sounds like it was a bit more to me) is receding.
