Blue Hawaii

The snow is still coming down here in Co Durham - 
so it's time to get snuggled up, in front of the fire, 
with a mug of hot chocolate and my box set of Grey's Anatomy.
But first, here's my latest card...


I wanted a party girl for this card and I have been trying to get my hands on some Stamping Bella, Uptown Girls  but they are proving hard to get hold of in the UK - so I was happy when I came across this stamp, in my stash, that had been a freebie in a magazine. I think it's from Papermania.
I coloured her with Copics and some stickles glitter, cut her out and popped her up on foam pads. I've called her 'blue hawaii' today, because of the cocktail she's holding.
The chevron paper is a digi from Pink Petticoat.
 

I used a spellbinders nested pennants die for the top corner, simply attached with staples and the 'for you' stamp is from Wild Rose Studios.
