Pure Innocence - My Basket Of Eggs

I've got a little Pure Innocence for you today. This is one from My Favorite Things' last release called Pure Innocence - My Basket Of Eggs . Isn't she just the sweetest!?

I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers--except for her dress, which is paper pieced. Then I cut/embossed the image with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. I left the image in the die and added some Copic marker around the edge, leaving a white border.

I just love how this pattern from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie worked out, and how that border punch shows a lot of the Bermuda Bay paper under it. The only thing left to do was to add a ribbon and a button. No, I'm not tired of buttons, and yes, I'm finding it hard to make a card *without* at least one button any more, LOL!

I finished the inside of this card with more of the Urban Prairie paper and a sentiment.

Thanks for dropping in today! I'll have a Stamp Simply challenge card for you tomorrow so be sure and stop back by to see what fun Sharon has up her sleeve for us.
