I couldn't wait to get using some of my blog candy and when I saw today's challenge at Stampavie and More with the theme of "red-white" I knew it would be perfect for the Sugar Nellie Post Box stamp that I won from Caryn at Glitter me Silly and some of the bling too.

I've only used part of the stamp, I left the post box out for this one. The colouring is with Prismacolor pencils and Sansador. I went over the dots on her hat etc with Sakura clear glaze to try and keep the red pencil off, I think it worked, but of course the glaze doesn't show in the photo.
I used the edge of a large square scallop nestie to make the scallop edge as I haven't got a scallop edger punch. The embossing was done with the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder, the ribbon is Anita's and I used X-cut punches to make the flowers.

I really love the colours for this challenge.

Thank you for looking and if I'm not back before "Happy Easter" to you all.

Oh wow Clare that is stunning - I have never thought to just use part of the stamp like that - very clever indeed. I love the colouring too - amazing. Thanks for sharing it, it's just beautiful.

Have a great Easter.
