Belles and whistles is to do some distressing, so i had so much fun using a little tool that is perfect for distresing the edges of your paper. I nearly had a heart attack cutting into these new Prima papers that my friend Cariena sent me, love them. I colored Belle with my copics, again i forgot to take note of the colors that i used, gotta make a reminder. I stitched around the edges of my layers, used an around the page MS punch on one of the layers, raised the image on a bit of foam for some dimension. the ribbon is one of the many that i have in the stash, i added a little teddy charm to the "giggle" sentiment and only after i had attached it i noticed that the teddy on the charm is almost identical to the little teddy in my stamped image, with a little heart on the tummy.
I chopped and inked the edges of a few little leaves with a fiskars punch that i have had for ages and added another little tag with the word friends and a few mandatory roses.
Have a great week bloggers
