For today's card I decided to ink up one of the darling new Little Cottage Cuties images, illustrated for Whimsy Stamps by Elisabeth Bell. This one is called Skippydee and Indiana. I also used the new Everyday Button Sentiments stamp set and the new Button Die:


I do confess to having a bit of a patterned paper addiction, and I am finding that I am only using 2-4 sheets from each 6x6 paper pad before moving onto the next one.  This is quite shameful and also makes my cards really expensive to make. So I've promised myself that I will start to use up the pads I have now before buying any new ones ... well, that's the plan, lol!  So for this card I used paper from my MME Indie Chic Nutmeg 6x6 pad.  I had a hard time matching the flowers, so I had to use a bit of chalk ink to colour them, but I think it turned out okay!  Here's a list of supplies:
