So pretty


I recently won the challenge at Allsorts and my prize was 8 sheets of Hobby House toppers. The images are all by Elisabeth Bell and they are all so gorgeous I didn't know which to use first. I believe this one was a Whiff of Joy stamp a few years ago and whilst I love colouring the toppers are handy when you have a lot of cards to make. I have a lot of fairs coming up so they will be very useful.

I used MME sweetest thing tangerine papers, MFT pierced fishtail dies and EK Success and Xcut flower punches. The sentiment is an old one which matched the papers perfectly.

Challenges
Elisabeth Bell's World Happy Birthday 
Bunny Zoe Teens and tweens 
Die Cuttin Divas anything goes 
Papertake Sketch 105 
Penny's anything goes 
Simon Says anything goes
