Bedtime Snuggles

Hello friends and happy Wednesday!  I have a new Simply Sassy card to share with you today.


This is Bedtime Snuggles, one of Sugar Nellie's newer Simply Sassy images.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I love her beautiful hair and those bunny slippers are just the cutest.  She was so much fun to color.  I used copics and colored pencils.  I added a touch of Glamour Dust to the heart on her hairbow.  I used my MFT die for the flowers and added a little pearl to each one.  I added some ribbon, a bow and a little charm with the moon and a star.  I always see the most beautiful flourishes on everyone's cards.  I had a really hard time trying to figure out how to use these flourishes but I guess they look OK.  Maybe practice makes perfect?  Thank you, Dolly, for loaning me your flourishes die.


I don't normally use a lot of orange in my cards.  But when I saw these new MME Stella and Rose papers at my LSS, Simply Scrapbooks, I fell in love with them ... and I bought quite a few of them.  So, you will probably be seeing more orange cards on my blog.  But hey, at least I'm not hoarding this paper lol!
