Hello my dears.. the weekend has arrived... Yay! 
Today sees the launch of another challenge over at Sweet Stampin' .. and my last one with them as guest DT...thank you soo much ladies for having me ... !!!
 So.. the theme this time is "Not Cute" .. this one had me stumped.. for a minute or two.. I LOVE cute.. and my stamping wardrobe screams what could I use???? 
Here she is......

This is a Leann Ellis stamp called "Belle flower", I have created this in purple... using the "Lavender Fields" papers from Raspberry Road.. She is coloured with my spectrums ..Skin:TN3,2,FS4,PP2-Hair TN!,GB2,8,10,EB5 Dress:PL5&4,HB1&2... 
the dies are Cheery Lynn Flourish... and Marianne Chinese roses, I have fed ribbon thro my cotton trim, and added a lace floer.. and a few caviar coloured breads.... 

 I have stitched and distressed... and dotted with Picket fence paint.. a bit of stickles.. and finito!!! 
Please go chck out the rest of the DT inspiration from the Sweet Stampin' girls.. and give the challenge a go... I am sure you have something "Not cute"??
