Hi everyone! Today I have a card to share with you using one of the gorgeous Some Odd Girl stamps Bliss. I love Some Odd Girl stamps - amazing to colour up! :D I have also incorporated this month's challenge theme over at The Stamp Spot: Pink, Bling, and Flowers! I would love it if you could link up your creations - you can be anywhere in the world and use any products to enter!

*ALSO The Stamp Spot is having a Design Team Call! Pop over to take a look - they are the loveliest bunch of ladies and so much fun to work with :) *

I fussy cut Bliss out and used a bunch of die cuts behind her to create a nice layered look. I used Spellbinders OvalsSpellbinders Scalloped Ovals, and Cheery Lynn Italian Flourish. Have you noticed that The Stamp Spot now sells Cheery Lynn? These dies are so amazing - so much detail and they look great to add some more depth and interest to your projects! If you don't see what you are after in the store, just pop a quick email to Michelle at and she can order them in for you! :D To incorporate the bling, I added in a whole heap of pearls.

I coloured up Bliss using my copic markers, and distressed all of the pages using Distress Inks Frayed Burlap. Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E33, E35, E37
Dress: R81, R85, R59
Flowers: BV000, BV00, BV02, BV08
Stems: YG03, YG63, YG67
