Au naturale?

OK, I know my French is despicable, so I apologize for the title........no idea if it's spelt remotely as it should be! So why attempt it, I hear you ask.........well, there is a reason as to why this phrase was running through my muddled brain, whilst I was creating this card. I'm hoping all will become clear when you see............miss Ivy Ketto! Here she is..........

It's Bellarific Friday today over at Bloggabella, which means I finally got to ink up one of my new stamps I won recently, from Stamping Bella. The challenge this week was a sketch by the lovely Lindabella (great!), and I knew that once I'd stamped this little lady, I wanted her and the card to be very......organic. So, out came the browns, greens, yellows.....Prisma's of course, and you know the drill - a touch of Copics for skin. The DP's are from Basic Grey's Origins line (perfect!), together with some Kraft paper. I also used some flowers I've had forevah, which have, I think a rafia type of stuff on there, and a wooden beaded flower I stuck on top of an inked die cut. I used natural hemp instead of ribbon and the sentiment came as a 'no brainer' so this turned into a 'Congrat's' type of card.

I was also inspired by another perfect little challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room - challenge #27 calls for Fresh Living and has a photo of 'greenery' for inspiration.

Ivy will also be entered into the following:

Lexi's Creations - #22 Flower Power
Totally Gorjuss - #47 Flowers

Don't forget tomorrow is 'Sneak Peak' day over at OSAAT challenge blog so drop in for your chance to win some goodies.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
