Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge #15 Outside the Diecut

It's Thursday and it's time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet stamps!  We had lots of great entries into the Summer challenge (it must have been too easy!).   This fortnight the challenge is a little bit more challenging... it is  'Outside the Diecut' so use a diecut but have a portion of the image spill out of the frame.  If that sounds tricky, have a look at this tutorial on how to get your image outside the diecut to get your started.    

Head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog to check out all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team!

Here's my card using Adela and Dida:

The papers are from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket and the chipboard embellishments are from Maya Road.  I painted them with white paint and then inked and Stickled them.  I have coloured Adela and Dida with copics (see below).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Ambers Crafts and Stuff Challenge #20: Sparkle and Shine
For Fun Challenges: Anything Goes
Crafts and Me Challenges # 46:Anything Goes
The Paper Variety Challenge #45: Circles

There are the copics I used:

Happy Thursday!

Gorgeous card Arabella. I love the lightness and sparkle you created on the wings. Fab layout with all the die cut bits and the doily behind your frame. Your colouring is dreamy.
