Stamp Something - with pretty papers!

This week at Stamp Something our challenge is 'pretty papers'... Seen as I've put myself on a paper ban, it's going to be torture for me seeing everyone's lovely papers, and not being able to rush off and buy them!  I've managed 17 whole days so far lol, and there's been no cheating :o)  Only 6.5 months to go - eeeek!



We're sponsored by Funky Kits so there'll be a fab prize for the lucky winner.  I've got some new un-inked Sugar Nellie stamps that I could have used, but I had an urge to use this gorgeous Annie stamp that I've not used for far too long.

I've coloured her with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and cut her out with a nestie that I'd forgotten I'd even got, it's so long since I used it.  The papers are Craftwork Cards ones that I usually can't bear to use - it's hard to tell from the pics just how lovely they are... they've got a gorgeous pearly sheen.  The flowers were cut with my MFT die, border cut with MS scallop dot punch, buttons from stash and sentiment is Pink Petticoat.

Something's not really working with this card, but I'm not sure why and I had to stop myself from faffing around with it in the end!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
