A Girl's Best Friend

Afternoon everyone...
just got time for a quick post before the football gets underway.
Come on England!!

Today I have used one of my new stamps from Lili of the Valley.
This one is called 'Little Girls Swing Time'
and I thought it would be perfect for this week's
Simon Says challenge, where the theme is FRIENDS.
What better friend could a little girl have, than her dog?

The stamp is coloured with Copics,
with a little Papermania mosaic gem as the button
on the back of her dress.
I distressed the edges with Distress Ink ( Antique Linen ).
I used embroidery thread for the cross stitches,
after I had punched the holes through with a large pin!

Design Paper is Papermania Simply Elegant.
Blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards
Robin's Nest Dew Drops
A touch of stickles glitter.
