My Crafty Heart DT Card - Dance & Be Happy

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Its soooooo bootiful here by the sea today lovely blue skies & lots of sunshine. A bit late today as I've got my grand-daughter still cus Ben & Megan have taken my youngest & gone Wet & Wild, its a water theme world, lots of slides etc, its canny actually!!
Anyway I am here with my card today with a new stamp that my fabby boss Teresa from My Crafty Heart sent me, these are new to her store & are sooooooooo cute!!!
This is a Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp & this one is 'Let's Dance' which is soooooo me lol!!!

Papers are the gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Be Happy' which I thought suited this image so well. I've edged the edges with chalk ink & matted onto thick kraft card.

I've decorated inside to compliment the front except I've put the 2nd layer straight instead of at an angle. I've also added Hug Snug Seam Binding & stapled it on. I've also made a double bow with the seam binding.

The image I have coloured with my Copics & added bit of shading with a Prisma pencil. I've also paper pieced her apron & added some shading. I've used a 'Butterfly Delights' Memory Box die on the image matting. The stamps also come with a range of sentiments included, I've used the 'Dance & Be Happy' & some musical notes.
For more Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps look here.

I've used another one of the sentiments inside saying 'From Me'. I've cut 2 corners out using the 
'Macarena Corner' Memory Box Die. I also added Melissa Frances 'Cream Pearls' to the top corner & a Resin Flower to the bottom corner.

Well I think that is it from me why not along to My Crafty Heart for some gorgeous crafty shopping..........sssshhhhh dont tell ya hubsters I dont told to....

Thank you so much for stopping by today it means the world to me, big hugs to all that stop by
