Such a Sweetie - Tea Time by Elisabeth Bell

Hello to everyone. 
 I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the lovely sunny days that we have been having following so many cold and dark weeks. 
 I am told we are having some colder and wet weather over the week-end, its an excuse to stay indoors and do more crafting.

My card for today features the fabulous image Tea Time  from Elisabeth Bell.  
I have purchased the new Simpler Times CD which features the wonderful art work of Elisabeth Bell. 
 There are some super cute images on this CD and I am particularly interested in the Digi Stamps.   
You will be seeing a lot of these as I am a bit obsessed.

I would like to use this card to enter The Digi Bells  Guest DT call.
You are required to either Case (copy) or Lift ( use certain elements) from a card on the blog. 
 I have  used Sweet Little Lamb by the fabulous talented Julie, please see card below.

I have 'Lifted' several features,  an oval shaped image, wonderful bow detail, charm detail and fabric flower in my case I used ribbon roses with pearl detail.   I have used ribbon bobble detail instead of the lace detail.
So much fun, will be keeping my fingers crossed.

I am so delighted and honoured that my card has been picked as a favourite of the week on Splitcoast Stampers, thank you so much and this can be viewed here.

Materials used to make this card.

Wonderful image as listed above coloured using my Copic Pens, cut with a Spellbinder and edged with sparkling Frantage and pink glitter. 
 Her little foot is again free from the background.   
This caused a lot of comment in my last card.  
I trim round the part of the image which would be free from the background and place the cutting die behind this.
Mount for card is cut using Spellbinders Dies and I have used card which has been covered with gilding flakes, lots of sparkle and shine which does not show up so well in the pictures.
I have used Spellbinder dies to decorate top and bottom of image, again covered in gilding flakes.  
Little charm and cup detail, again with Frantage.
Instead of flowers I have used lots of ribbon.  Pink grosgrain with pearl button.  Pink floral ribbon with pearls and soft pink bobble ribbon.
Paper is from Kaisercraft and is lovely and I think perfectly compliments the image.
Masking layer is brown kraft card and base card is ivory Centura Pearl and is approx 7" x 7".

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Pink grosgrain ribbon was originally on a beautiful small birthday cake which was given to me for my last birthday by my DH.  Cake was from a well know high street retailer.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.

Sending hugs to all from,
