Mabelle RO: Amelie

Hi Everyone!

Mabelle has a new release today!  There are SO many cute new images. This is one of them - her name is Amelie.  Isn't she lovely? 
I used the April "I Love Sketches" layout for this card.  The designer papers, all 3 patterns, are My Mind's Eye "Howdy Doody".  One of my new favs from the Spring releases.  Stitching was added to all 3 panels and arranged similarly to the sketch.
The flower could be colored as part of a head band, but I decided to make it a hat.  I think she looks cute with a hat. I colored her in some of my favorite colors - blues and greens. 
To add some interest, I popped the 2 flowers and the 2 leaves and added a ribbon with a flower shaped button.  The coral red was chosen for the flowers to match the patterned paper.

Take a look at all the design team blogs and what they created for today's new release.
