Well now if you’ve got a cutie who’s a real sweet petutie…

This new Lola Western Cutie image from Simply B Stamps I have on my card is a real sweet petutie, don’t you agree?

I loved colouring the folds in her skirt and am really pleased with how she turned out.  I tried a new red combo (see ingredients list below) and I love it, especially teamed with black.

My card layout is from the current sketch at Cheerful Sketches where I swapped out the circle elements for some hearts.  I wanted to use some of my new dies on this, the two scalloped ones are from an Anna Griffin set I picked as this is actually going out to the sweet friend who got the die for me.  The black lace is new and I thought worked perfectly for the horizontal element, the shape suited the western theme and tied in nicely with the image.

Over at Hanna and Friends they have embossing as their theme, I have two kinds on my card.  I’ve got some heat embossing with some Fran-tage to make my sentiment just a little more special and my dies were embossing dies also.

As I have a number of hearts on my card I am also entering this in the current challenge at Live and Love Crafts.
