Ooh La La!

Good afternoon happy bloggers and I hope you are enjoying the weather as much as I am.  In North London it was quite dull this morning but the sun is blazing now and it has gotten hot again - not warm but hot!!

You will likely know how over the moon I was to get my new Simply Sassy rubber stamps ttrhu my letter box the other day.  They have been inked and waiting to be coloured in so here is Ooh La La!  I just adore them all and want to get all the older ones too now!!

I coloured her using my PMs (hoping to get some colouring pencils to see how I get on with them but need advice on which ones to get you lovely ladies out there pls), mounted her onto pearlised blue paper that I embossed using a fab funky folder from Papermania, then mounted that onto a Nellie Snellen Oval Die embossed with the same folder.  The red backing paper is from The Works (a massive pack of handmade that I got ages ago for 99p) and the blue dotty is from my stash.
You can see that on top of her stamped rose I actually added a small red rose that was left over from my son's wedding stationary last year (knew they would come in handy at some time!!) and I think it looks fabulous!

The side-on view below shows the depth of that stunning blue spotty ribbon and the ruby red rose.
I am entering this one into the following challenges~

PMs ~ Ivory, Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink, Caramel, Cinnamon, Sandstone, Pastel Blue, China Blue, Poppy, Ruby, Moss, Cool Grey 1 & 4;

Nellie Snellen Oval Die & Papermania Embossing folder used.
