Belles & Whistles card 'Little Friend'

Hey all - hope your all having a good weekend, I'm just off to a local bonfire & fireworks display with my little girl tonight!

Todays post is another Belles & Whistles card by one of my favourite artists Elisabeth Bell - I just LOVE her cute & well drawn images they are so sweet & always look really effective when coloured. I've allready entered the fab challenge this week once, but wanted to do another entry with the 'Pins & Pearls' theme...

...Lovely designer papers are Lost & Found Rose by My Minds Eye, heres a closer look...

I'm really into my shabby chique style at the mo!...

Stunning image is one of my all time Elisabeth Bell images 'Little Friend' which I've been after for AGES! & recently purchased, so happy with it & with how it looks in these soft muted colours. Image has been painted with Distress Inks...

...The little birdy is a Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers die from Sizzix 'Bird & Cage' cut from white Bazzil & glittered. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Notice the pretty circular pearl spray & pearl pins I've added for the 'Pins & Pearls' element at the Belles & Whistles challenge...

...Pretty border punch is a Martha Stewart PATP 'French Scroll' edge punch. I've added some shabby wide ribbon in off white with bow, then finished with button tied with help & lovely heart charm. Notice the pretty lace from my local haberdashery...

...Above is a little peek inside & below the matching box I made...
