Party dress bumble bee

Another fab sugar nellie stamp this one is a gorjuss girl and one of the stamps that led me to find the house of sugar. I painted this sweeties party dress with mica inks and her dress has a fab 2 tone shine . Her hair and skin is coloured with promarkers and her wings with stikles , well you can't have a sparkly Christmas outfit without sparklies.

The card style is a magic card the instructions I found from StampArtic here and I think it could become a favourite as I love the effect it's really quite stunning.
The papers I used were freebies from the bird house, I used 2 different shades of lilac. The sides I punched with a Mary Stewart snowflake border punch its very effective but in hind sight they are a little delicate for use on this design as they are easily damaged. 
The flower and the rose are from my stash and the sentiment is printed on vellum and mounted on gold mirri card and was from an old qvc kit.

The inside of the card I decorated with the same paper and added a spellbinders circle as some where to write the message.

Definitely a card deign I will be making again.

alphabet challenge-v is for vellum
