Blue Noelle

Hi all today I would like to show you a card that I have made for the following challenges:
I decided to use Blue for my colour theme and also a new image from the Baby Bud Design range of digi Stamps, I have seen these around in the land of blog for awhile and they always appealed to me so I finally treated myself to a couple, if you would like to do the same or just look at the range then please visit HERE. There is a freebie being offered so go grab it.
This is the image called Noelle and I have coloured her with Copics, I added Diamond Stickles to her hat, collar and buttons, unfortunately it doesn't really show up on this photo.  The bp is some that I have had for a few years now and until very recently lay untouched in it's box, I bought it from Sue Smith at Kameo, anyone who watches Create and Craft will know Sue as a regular visitor and wonderful crafter. This particular paper is from an Oriental pack but I think it looks great for this Winter card as well.
I have used a 6x6 white scalloped base card, I cut the image and mount from my scalloped oval Nesties, the mount is actually blue mirror card, while I had my Cuttlebug out I decided to use the flower dies from Marianne Creatable's, I am so naughty because I have only used these once or twice, however, I just bought two A4 magnetic sheets to mount all my Nesties on and they are now easily accessible so I have no excuse now, lol.
I added some button for the flower centres, card candy and some bling gems I also used some of my new lace which I love and a Penny Black 'Noel' stamp around the image.
Ok I have rambled on a bit so please forgive me I do hope you enjoy my card.
Hugs to all and see you in a bit.

Your sweet "Noel" card is absolutely adorable! I love her in blue and think she makes such a sweet card!

Thanks for joining our challenge at Baby Bud and also for your wonderful and kind comments about the Baby Bud images. I agree, and like you, fell in love with the little Baby Buds, the very first time I saw them.
