The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 3 "Love & Romance"

Here is my card for the challenge over on The Sugar Bowl. I have made a romantic card without using heart and pink and all my usual stuff.
I have used one of my new Elisabeth Bell stamps.....she is Spring has Sprung...and she is gorgeous. I have coloured her with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Walnut Stain (Hair)
Spiced Marmalade (Dress & Hair Bow)
Peeled Paint (Apron)
Black Soot (Lambs face)
Weathered Wood (Shadow)
The papers are all from an old ScrapaGoGo kit and are by My Minds Eye. I have also used Prima blossoms attached with a brad and spacer. The swirls were done with a QK Revolution die (run through my CuttleBug), and the card was finished off with a sentiment using a ScrapaGoGo stamp from the July 2008 kit designed my Anam Stubbington, and I also added some Making Memories mini alpha stickers.

The stamp is so cute, and I cannot believe I am one of the first people to receive her....yay me. Hop on over to The Sugar Bowl and check out all the wonderful cards....there is a truly fabulous prize on offer.....6 Leanne Ellis stamps....either the first set, or the new set that is due for release.

Beautiful card Caz. Great to see some less traditional colours for a romantic theme. You are so lucky to be playing with the new Elizabeth Bells. Love the swirls die you are using too... I feel a little online shopping coming on.
