Last Spring Kit Cutie and Saturday Challenge!!

Good day ladies,

I'd like you to meet our last sweet image from the Kraftin' Kimmie's Spring Kit! This is Gabrielle and I think she's just too cute in her lovely dress with the ruffled petticoats and the card thingies on the skirt. (Sorry, I just can't think of what you call them collectively. Somebody enlighten me, I mean I know they are spades, hearts etc., but there must be a name for them!!)

Anyway, I also made this card for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #20. Our fearless leader Kimmie is the hostess for this week and she wants us to use old papers and embellishments from our stash, nothing new. I didn't have a problem with this as I have lots of stuff that I've had for a long time. The DP is Bali Breeze from Stampin' Up. I'm not sure exactly how old it is, but it's a few years. I'm sure any of you S.U. demonstrators or former demos will attest to that. The ribbon is Baja Breeze, also from S.U. and it was one of the In Colours maybe last year or the year before. Also my flowers have been hangin' about for years too. Hey, I do use the stuff, but it takes a long time to get through it!!

Anyway, to get back to the card, I coloured Gabrielle and cut her out, then put her on an oval of the Bali Breeze DP, then set it on a scalloped frame of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I also used the accessory stamp, which is a little cup of tea (or coffee or whatever you want it to be). I used my Circle Nesties for it and the smallest Nestie Scalloped Circle in Regal Rose. I pop dotted both the main image layer and the teacup one. I added a little shoe charm to the BB ribbon and put a little sparkle on Gabrielle's hairband and the hearts etc. on her skirt. I used the sentiment 'You're Tea-riffic' from the Tea Sentiments, also on Pumpkin Pie.

Be sure to check out all the Krafty Girls Blogs to see what they have done with Giselle, then go to Kimmie's Challenge Blog tomorrow to join in our fun Blog Hop. At least one somebody will be winning stamps, not quite sure of those details yet.

Have a wonderful weekend,
