I Want to be Pretty

This image – from Sugar Nellie’s Simply Adorable stamps is called – I Want to be Pretty – and I can see why – cause she’s gorgeous.  I coloured her with Copics, Promarkers and a Flexmarker.  I cut around the image with an X-Cut oval and added frantage around the edge of this and to the edges of the sentiment – which was die cut with a Spellbinders Curved Rectangle.  The papers are from Nitwits and I machined a line of stitching around the edge of the gingham paper and distressed the edges of the floral one.  I’m not sure about the machine stitching – I didn’t want it to look too regular – but now I’m wondering if it looks just too wonky!!  The ribbon is from my stash and the lace, flowers and pearls are from Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment is computer generated.
