Mmm, I love the smell of new paper...

and the feel, and the look... lol... I should not ever step foot into a scrapbook store, the last thing I need is more paper!  However, my good friend Shana hauled me off to a crop on Friday night at a local store, and she had two sheets of the new My Mind's Eye 'Lime Twist' papers, and I was hooked!  Today I had to go to another LSS to grab some other sheets from the collection, it's so cute!

I decided to play along with this week's My Favorite Things sketch, and dug out one of my older Pure Innocence stamps called You're so Tweet to go with my new Lime Twist papers.

That cardstock seems more purple than burgundy in real life, honest!  LOL

Copic colours:
Skin - E000, 00, 93, chalk for blush
hair - E21, 23, 25, 27
dress, shoes, shirt - RV000, 00, 63, 66
bird - BG53, YR31

Oh I know - one day my craft room floor will come crashing through the kitchen under the weight of all my paper! Still can't resist more of it though... keep saying I'm going to ban myself from new paper for at least 6 months but so far it's all talk ;o)

Anyway... your card is fabulous! Love this sweet image and the gorgeous papers of course. Lisa x
