Sugar and Spice

Friday already, this week just flew by like crazy! 
I finally have a card to share, it's been way too long since I sat down to make something...but I had some time yesterday morning to ink up this cutie from Whimsy's Wee stamps. 

I stamped with memento ink on xpress it blending card, and colored with copics. I also used a faber castell polychromos pencil for some of the hair. 
My colors were inspired by the mix of pansies I have growing in my backyard :-)
I decided to use several circles in my design. Sentiments are all from the set "Girl Talk" from Whimsy Stamps. The button was from the latest release, and is part of a 4 button die set. I embellished with little prima flowers and some sticky pearls, and then added some glitter to the wings. 

You can find the Whimsy Stamps products here:
