In The Garden....

Good morning!  Ruby's Rainbow has a new challenge for this next fortnight; our theme "In The  Garden" was chosen by Shaz.  With zero degree temperatures here at the present, this helps me look forward to spring...I am so ready for it!

As I was looking through my stamps for something to work with, I came across Stella and knew I had to ink her up...I love her quirkiness!  Do you like the smudges of dirt on her face?  She's colored with pencils and I've accented her crown and wand with yellow glitter.  The sketch is from Some Odd Girl; I've done a bit of distressing and added a button/twine for embellishing.

Image/Sentiment: Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Dark Chocolate, and New Leaf, Jillibean Soup DP
Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter, PTI Hibiscus Burst Button/Dark Chocolate Baker's Twine
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, MFT Large Scallop Die-namics Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the creations the girls have made...I would love to see your take on "In The Garden" too!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers: Blooming Images
Ink it Pink: In The Garden
My Crafty Spot: Flowers
Paper Playtime: Use a Sentiment
Polkadoodles: Shabby Chic

Thanks for stopping by!
