You're the Bestest!

I said I'd be back today with another card made using some of my Glitter Pot haul...I just had to get a Penny Black stamp while I was there...and I've had my eye on this one...'You're the Bestest'...for a while...my lovely friend Pauline keeps creating beautiful cards with it, so I caved in when I saw it on the shelves. I coloured it waith watercolour pencils, and then cut it out using one of my 'Labels 1' Nesties. The papers are from the My Mind's Eye 'Ohh La La (for Him)' collection, and after I'd distressed the edges a little, I added faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the CCSR set by Papermania.
