Birthday Elsa Card (Bugaboo Stamps image)

Hi crafty friends,

I am a guest designer over at Catch the Bug for a couple of weeks and here is a card I made using one of their images (Chibi Elsa), isn't she adorable for a little girl's card? I tried my hand at no lines colouring for the first time. I also faux stitched the papers after cutting them into this patchwork design. The blue dots around her are liquid pearls.

To check out their store click Bugaboo, to check out their latest challenge blog click Catch the Bug. Their challenge this week is a Bingo Board challenge (see below).
