Bomb Shell Isabella

I'm sharing with you today the gorgeous new "Isabella" Saturated Canary image I bought in rubber from the Little Darlings Stamps store.  I knew as soon as I saw her, I just had to make her a red headed bomb shell!

The card base was completely created from the square double scalloped Shapeology die from Whimsy stamps.  The delightful texture on the inside was created by embossing and the Noor design die was embossed entirely with Kaleidoscope powder to give it a back drop full of shimmer.  The dress, lips and roses are paper pierced after distress the outer edges with a sponge and the inside ruffle area with the pen.  

Challenges Entered:
Saturated Canary Challenge - 3 B's (blue,Bow,Bombshell)
Cut It Up - Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund - 1stamp,2DP,3embellishments

She was topped off (tehe) with rich auburn hair and some pearls to match the tone of the card.  The flowers are self rolled and the stunning ribbon was altered with Ranger ink and water to bleed inward.

The ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon was chosen, paid for and shipped same day, then I received it just two days later.  I received tons of ribbon and paid so little, they have a new permanent customer.  I was so pleased at how fast, inexpensive and beautiful it all was!  

I've sew the ribbon into the scallop to give the impression of vines.  She's a lovely prom queen prancing through the luxury of her garden.
