Crafting for all Seasons #97 "Girly Girls"

Good morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Dies and/or Punches. We're looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Scrapper's Delight who gave the DT images to work with.

I've chosen to use an image of my own this time...I won this Sweet Pea stamp from Scribble and Scrap some time ago now and have finally got around to using it. I coloured with watercolour pencils for a softer look. Die is a Starlight Oval from Tattered Lace - I've die cut the image and inlaid it back into the coloured frame.
Wishing die is from Simon Says Stamp. Gems from my stash.
