Nora Claire Hatter

Good evening!  It has been a cold, grey, wet and miserable day here in Greece... not nice for venturing outdoors at all!  I hear the weekend is going to be good though, so that is something.  Finger's crossed I will not be required to cook for a dinner party at the boss's house!

This is just a quick post to introduce you to Miss Nora Claire Hatter from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  She is part of the brand new Paris Release.  By the way, have you joined the blog hop yet?  There are some fabulous prizes, not to mention fabulous projects from my teamies!

This is just one of the many cards I made before I left on holiday... It is a small card (11cm x 11cm) to fit into a card gift box.    The papers are from Crate Paper, Webster's Pages and one other.  The chipboard butterfly is from Make it Crafty (I love these chippies) and the red button is from Doodlebug Designs.  The plastic rose and the crystal charm are from Making Memories (I think).  The seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I cut the green circle with my Slice machine and stitched around the papers with my sewing machine.  Nora Claire Hatter is coloured with copics (see details below).

Here's a close-up of the lovely lady... I tried a new mixture of blues for her hat and I quite like the tone of it...

Here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
