Izzie has a flower!

Hello and Happy Saturday! Here is a card I made with a Stamping Bella image, Izzie! It is for their challenge this week to make a monochromatic card. I colored her with monochromatic colors, but then wanted to use my fav Cosmo Cricket paper from the Early bird collection! I don't know if my card will "count" for the challenge, but I like it!
I also make some scalloped ruffles from pages of an old ("vintage" hehe!) book from my attic!
Credit for this goes to Dawn McVey, one of the design team for Papertrey Ink. Such a clever idea, I think!
Izzie is colored with the BG line of copics, BG11, BG72, BG18 and BG 75. I tried (not quite successfully!) to make grass like Paula Tracy of the Stamping Bella design team!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've seen something you like!
News for the week:

This is so cute, I love it! Love the paper choice and your "vintage" book paper too. I think you did a great job on the grass!

I think it is simply adorable and I love the scallop with the pages from the books. I may have to go to thrift store and see if they have one I can buy to cut up.
