Stamping Bella

Hi. I made this card about a month ago for a friend of mine who's pregnant. Whether it's because of who it is for and the occasion but I think this is one of my most favourite cards!! I love this image so much- especially the cute teddy bear in the bag and I love the pastel colours. 

The image is Stamping Bella which I coloured in with watercolour pencils. The papers are all from the Papermania Pastel kit which I've layered up using a sketch from Papertake Weekly (I think!) The sentiment and gorgeous leaf are also from the Papermania Pastel kit and I added a flower which I dotted with Crystal Stickles and a green mini brad. I finished off with some blue hot fix crystals.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Watercolour pencils; Paper- Pastel kit (Papermania); Sentiment & leaf (Papermania); Brad (Woodware); Flower (Ebay); Crystal Stickles; Hot fix crystals (London Bead Co).

P.S. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU who sent me messages of support over the last couple of weeks, I really do appreciate it x
