An Old Card in Honour of New Stamps

I haven't been stamping; I've been cleaning the house like a maniac (by some miracle, LOL.) I've been attacking closets and purging and sorting, so I can go empty out my storage without having junk overload when most of it comes back here to be sorted in turn. I am such a hoard'o'saurus !! It's genetic; I swear! (No really it is) :0)

So, here's a card I made a while back but never posted. I made it for my marvelous friend Kinkers (Kim), who gave me this adorable StampaBella--my first one, but soon to be 'not my only one.' I ordered a couple recently (with my allowance) heehee! I love her little suitcase (gotta get me one of those!) It's cut out and mounted on top for a little dimension... And that is just how my hair looks in the morning (only not as tidy, haha.)

Ingredients: Black stazon, blender pen and reinkers ("Chocolate Chip" hair, "Tempting Turquoise" dress, "Basic Black" stampin' suitcase...) Cardstock: Whisper White, Cool Caribbean blooms with clear embossing and "Tempting Turquoise." The flowers are from the "You make me Happy" stamp set and have beads in the center. The Basic Black background mat has the "Doodle This" flourish embossed in "Whisper White" with clear embossing powder.

Thanks for havin' a look,
:0) Mel
