Kraftin'Kimmie stamps

A few weeks ago I won a challenge on Kit and Clowder an my prize was a stampset of choice from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!
Now, if you haven't seen their stamps yet, hop over to their site and check it out, so many cute and beautiful rubber stamps!
So I was very happy when I received my package, and couldn't wait to stamp and color :-D
This is my first card with a Kraftin'Kimmie stamp, and I think more will follow !

The image is colored with copics, but I paper-pierced the clothes.
The background flowers are stamped with Versamark and colored with PanPastels.

I'm entering this card in the CUSTOMER CREATION COMPETITION on Kit and Clowder.
