Shy Little Nickie

Hello,I'm here today to share a recent card I made as one of the July/August guest designers for Inky Impressions...


Isn't the Nickie stamp range so pretty?  This one is Shy Little Nickie and perfect for those thinking of you or missing you cards.  I wanted all out to emphasis her prettiness hence the lace and doily and touch of pink (which I don't use much unless it's HOT pink!).  I matched her up with papers from the Authentique Splendid paper pad and subtly distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.

Okay, I'm off now.  Thanks for visiting and see you on my blog rounds later!




 I am entering my card into the following challenges:
