Belle does a double Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was very good thank God, and I had time to play and I also spent some family time with my mother, sister and her family. Today I wanted to share with you this lovely Belle card; which by now you should know that it's called "Lemonade Anyone?" She is wonderful to colour, like all her friends from the awesome Belles 'n Whistles stamps. They are fun fun fun! and if you don't have them yet.. you are just losing something!

I coloured Belle with Copics, and distressed the outer white space, after cutting a circle with the nestie. For distressing I used Tattered Rose and Frayed Burlap on the edges. I had lots of fun with this sketch I found on Stamping for the Weekend, and I can see my self using it again soon. Lots of layers, and small ones with which we can use our scraps :) Also Stamp Something want us to use our favourite embellies.. and there they are in this card: pearls, flowers and lace. (I include charms in my list of favourites as well, but I thought I had enough things on this one!)

I hope you like this card. I added a lot of lovely flowers as you can see, and it gave her a sort of vintage look. On the glass and jug I used Crystal Lacquer for dimension. I have to do the inside yet.. will finish it this afternoon. Have a good week my friend, and thank you for the comments I recieve, which are very encouraging to me.
