So on to the release and the start of April's challenge. This month the theme is birthdays you can enter as many times as you want the only rules being use a So Suzy Stamp and follow the theme Simple!!!
I have used one of the fab new stamps girl on a swing:
Isn't she just adorable!!! I have colored her with my Spectrum Noir pens and added Polychromo pencil to her hair for more texture. The backing paper is from a Papermania capsule collection. I have used a spellbinder die to cut the tree twice, once on brown card and the second on the green. These have been placed on top of each other and the tree trunk in the green has been cut away to show the brown underneath. The flowers were made using a small flower punch, shaped and glued to the tree.
 I placed a water-colored background behind the tree and then used pop stickers to fix the little girl in place. This was then matted onto the background paper.
The sentiment was printed from my pc onto the same paper used in the background. I then matted this onto some of the brown card. I die cut some vines and added some of the flowers around the sentiment to tie in with the image.
I think you would agree the little darling is so sweet.
Thanks for stopping by and if you are following the blog hop you need to hop on over to Kim's blog to see what fab makes she has designed. Oh and don't forget to stop by either the So Suzy Facebook group or the blog and enter our challenge!
