Bella with Presents - The Stamp Basket DT

I have my DT card for The Stamp Basket blog to show you today, and it's also my card for a lovely friend who's celebrating a special birthday... she banned me from putting her age on the card though lol!  I decided to make a book card, as I wanted a little space for a pressie...

Sorry, there are quite a few photos!






The perfect space for a little package of rubber stamps :o)

Items available from The Stamp Basket

Seam binding - chalk white (dyed with lavender memento ink)


I've coloured lovely Bella with promarkers and flexmarkers, adding my little Viva pearl dots around her, and some grass using Prisma pencils.  The sentiments - inside and out - are LOTV, and I stamped a flourish, by Eco Green, on the tag in 'lulu lavender' memento ink.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Rush, rush, rush again!  Few more things to do, and then I should get some time to sit and catch up with some of your blogs... Hope you've had a lovely day :o)
