All things Grow with Love - Mini Layout Collection #1

Hello everyone,
                   I have a mini layout to share with you today and can be a card as well.  I've been wanting to color her since I got her like a month ago. I just have a lot of things to finish personal and unfinished craft wise. So, I finally get a chance to color her and here it is. I colored her hair and skin with my copic markers and the rest of the image I used Prismacolor pencils. Although, the background color very chrismassy,lol! I want her to stand out that's why I colored her like that. The image was designed by Sarah Kay from Stampavie. I found her designs while I was just browsing on the internet for new stamp to LIKE. And glad I did, I have few more of her designs that are in my wish list and can't wait to order those as well. =)
                  Anyways, let me tell you the rest of the details in this card. I decided to sew again, the last time I used my sewing machine was years ago before I had my kids. It's been over 4 years! But anyway, so I sewed some of the edges of the background cardstock and papers. I love, love the shimmers, so I added some Iridescent Medium pretty much all over this card, her hat, and pretty much all the edges of my card. But before that I distress the cardstocks first and ink it with distressed ink. For embellishments I made this tulle flower a long time ago. I used to sell fabric flowers in my etsy shop and I have a lot of left over. I went crazy making them for headbands, clips, you name it but good thing I did not adhere them to the clip or else that's gonna be not good to take it off. I added a strip of red satin fabric and tied it to mimic the ribbon and adhered in the back of the cardstock. Of course, have to add some doilie and underneath it I added gold shimmery tulle. The patterned paper was from My mind's eye.
                Starting today I will collect all the mini layouts that I'm gonna be making and make a mini album out of it. In this collection, I'm concentrating only the images that I love and usually when you make a layout you put pictures but this one are all gonna be my favorite stamp images. Also, I have a reason to use all my stamps than just staring at them, lol!
