Elphine House Australia Challenge #56

Hi again!  I'm back with a second post tonight because it's Wednesday morning already in Brisbane and it's time for a new Elphine House Australia challenge.  The theme for Challenge #56 is "charms and pins".  The only other requirement is to use an Elisabeth Bell stamp (any company).

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Innocent Pink and the patterned papers are from the echo Park Bundle of Joy Girl 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Evania Nursing Boo-boo from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped it onto MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Liquid Pearls to her waistband and lots of Crystal Stickles to her wings.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A triple-loop taffeta bow, heart charm and a handmade crystal and pearl pin finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elphine House Australia blog and check out the beautiful creations from Lynda, Julie and Lynne.  We hope you will play along this month!  You have until Tuesday, April 15th, Brisbane time to enter your project.  Don't forget to use an Elisabeth Bell stamp!

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
