2 challenges: 'Hugs to you'

Finally got round to using one of my Annie stamps and looking through this week's challenges thought she'd fit the sketch over on Sketch Sat and I picked some papers which would work with the copic colour challenge this week. Just looking at photo she looks a bit pink but she's not in real life - honest, it's just bad lighting!
Love the angle of this stamp and the way she's looking up at you (not to mention that hair!). Was going to decoupage the rose but then got lazy so just gave it a coat of glossy accent and sprinkled lots of glamour dust over it instead.
  • Images: 'Iressistable Annie' from Charmed delectable stamps, sentiment from Hero arts set, flowers in the corner are MME 'wild asparagus' wooden 99p stamps I got from my local papermill store.
  • Colouring: Copics as per this week's challenge plus few others I forgot to include in photo
  • Papers: MME 'wild asparagus' paper block matted with dark brown card onto a green base card blank (looks too flat without the matting)
  • Others: various punches (corner rounder, flourish, flower, photo corner), ric rac ribbon, paper rose

Hope you're all having a good Sunday. I've been naughty and pre-ordered the new batch of Sarah Kay stamps (even though I've still to use all of my existing ones but they are 1 line I can't resist and yes, I have held back on other stuff . . . just don't know for how long haha).

Talking of irresistable, have you seen Katharina's post today about the new Elisabeth Bell Autumn stamp kit? Yup, she's starting to take pre-orders and has sneek peek up - and it's looking good! You have until Aug 7th to place pre-orders. . Go on, you know you want to ;)

Beautiful card Fran. Love the colours.
I am the same with my stamps - I buy new ones even when I haven't used or hardly used the ones I have. I must drag out some of my older ones and use them.
