Love the colour of her hair
I die cut her into a circle and made a wreath of leaves for her.
Stamp the leaves with Leafy Accents stamp set , Die cut 
Then stamp your sentiment

This is the first Elizabeth Bell lass that I coloured,
love her grey hair.
the leaves were made using
and some cosmic shimmer mist
Love the little sentiment from Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps.
But mostly I'm so pleased with the way everything blends together on the gorgeous Classic Wedding Collection Papers  from Heartfelt Creations

I've really enjoyed turning this image from Elizabeth Bell into a card using my Leafy Accents stamp, die and mold from HEARTFELT CREATIONS
The petunias and stamens are also from Heartfelt Creations

The back ground was achieved with some of Stampin Up!'s newest colours - Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Mango Melody

I love this Toucan        

I used some lovely paper from one of my Heartfelt collections for the background and stamped the sentiment (from for the love of stamps by Hunkydory in a really bright ink.
The flowers are made using the Tropical Paradise Collection from Heartfelt Creations - they really set off this brightly coloured toucan. I love adding dimension where I can.

Thank you for looking.
