Curly Locks Kiki from Elisabeth Bell for GDT - The Digi Bells

Hello everyone, I hope this finds you well.

I am listing this post in conjunction with my GDT posting on the fabulous

I am so honoured and delighted to be able to Showcase the inspiring art work of Elisabeth Bell, featured in the fabulous Digital Gallery and am really enjoying being part of this talented Team.

My card for today features the so sweet image Curly Locks Kiki and she is a real cutie pie.

List of Materials used to make this card:

Wonderful image as listed above coloured using my Copic Pens.
Card is easel shaped and cut from brown kraft stock using a Go Kreate Die.
Design papers are Maja Spring Basic and these are lovely.
Several cutting dies have been used.  
Spellbinder for label mount.  
Swirl is I think a Cheery Lynn Design die, as is the doily.
Martha Stewart punch detail.
Embellishments are from my stash and include cute metal scissors, sewing machine, lace, ribbon which is really lush, pearls, flowers and tags.
The Frantage made me use it. I am totally addicted.  
This is pink and I use a Versamark pen to apply.  
A feather also happened to attach itself and I think it looks good.

Update on Challenges.  
This card has been featured on Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog - First Daily Talent.  I am beyond delighted.  Thank you so much.
