No Fair Girl

LOVE this stamp (although, I have to admit when I got her I was surprised at how tiny she is). She is part of the Tiddly Inks line at Stamping Bella. I finally had the desire to ink her up for the first time for myself (she'd already been sent out as images to friends, of course!). I just love the expression on her face, oh how my daughter Tolla often looks at me this way!

This card started with a scrap of DP that caught my eye as I was placing things on my table and just grew from there. I'm very pleased with the finished layout as it's always fun to make a card from scratch when I normally use a sketch for beginning inspiration. She was a bit of a pain to color, I think I'll try to paper piece her next time and those curls!!! OH MY, those were a....., well, you know. LOL I left the inside blank as I'm sending her with a swap I'm in as a thank you to the hostess so I want her to be able to use it if she wants for whatever.

Of course, I'm going to complain about my camera and the lack of sufficient lighting in my house to take good pics of my cards. So she's a bit blurry and the colors are greatly muted.
