Stamp Fairy - Mimi Love

Today, I have an image from Stamp Fairy - Mimi Love.  Isn't she the sweetest?  This card is actually an adoption card request.  Some mutual friends are adopting for the second time, a little girl from China.  Their family is growing from 3 to 4 and I thought this was the most perfect image, since she is hold a string of 4 hearts.

I just found Stamp Fairy recently; I won some digis in a challenge.  Let me tell you - it was hard to choose from all the cuteness!   I did choose this one and then received the adoption card request - so exciting to use her right away.
The image was layered on a base image printed on cream cardstock.  Her dress is paper pieced and the hearts are also, so the image is 3 layers.

The heart was cut using a coluzzle layered template.  The cream mat for the inner heart was cut using Magic matter disk set.  All the patterned papers are from the same paper pad - BasicGrey Picadilly.
