ESS - Sketchy Thursday with my Bella's

Wow. This card really gave me a run for my money....I decided that this sketch would be perfect for some of my bellas, which I haven't inked up in a really long time....so off I went a' inkin'. FIVE times later, of die cuttin' that oval, and stampin on it, did I finally get a good stamp. I don't know what was up, perhaps someone was trying to tell me to quit for the night, but you know stubborn me, I just kept on a going. I really wanted to get a card done for Tracy's challenge!
And this is what came of it. I absolutely love this little darlin'! Wendy Papillon is her name. And don't ya just love the bling on the dots of her apron? Had to add those!!! But there's something with the card that I just can't put my finger on....perhaps the pp just doesn't go, I just don't know. If ya have any suggestions....please be critical! I obviously need the input! LOL!

But if you noticed....I did use another one of the new In Colors on this card.....Crushed Curry would be the one! It is the color of her apron, as well as the polka dotted ribbon! Just LOVE the polka dotted ribbon for all these new colors!

Stay tuned for more new fun colors and stamps in the days to come....and also, I am going to be giving away some YUMMY BLOG CANDY to one of my lucky followers when my following count reaches 20! So if you haven't already....sign yourself on up and follow my blog and win something really exciting......I haven't decided exactly what it's going to be, but I'm thinking something new and exciting out the the new SU catalog!!!!
