A Balanced Diet!

Hi everyone! Have no fear I am not going to preach to you all about having a balanced diet .... LOL!

Elzybells Art Stamps will be releasing new stamps this coming Monday 23rd February, so for the next few days I will be sharing with you some cards I have made using some of the stamps that will be available.

For my card today I used the new set called "Just Desserts" ... I just love this set! It contains two new Elzybell girls, 5 sentiments and a couple of other stamps.

When I was out with my friend earlier in the week I decided to pop into a shop that sells my favorite designer papers ... Kaiser ... well they had brand new just released papers which I just had to buy ... and this one with the table setting was one of them. Knew I needed it just didn't know why until I came home LOL! Of course when I looked at this image and the sentiment ... I thought hmmm balanced diet means table settings so this paper was perfect! I paper pieced the girls dress using the reverse side of another of the papers in the same range, I sponged around the edge of the dress using rose red SU ink to give the dress some color ... I didn't want it to be white.

Oh the layout of my card uses the sketch from this months Fan Club Gallery over on SCS.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Elzybells Design Team's blogs to see some more sneak peeks ... you can find the links to their blogs on my side bar. I will be back tomorrow with another card for you.

Paper: White; Rose Red & Pacific Point - SU; DP - Kaiser

Sweet card Hoots!! I swear, you must buy one of every single dp out there. You have something to match every image you use...that means, you must have 3 semi's full of dp...how do you find the one you need each time? *grin*
