Not another New favorite stamp!!

Oh my gosh, I remember when I started stamping and making cards I was introduced to Stampin Bella.  Had to have them. Have many of them.  Then I saw Magnolias on Scrapbook.com and fell in love with them.  Had to have them. Have many of them.  Then I fell in love with CCDesigns.  Had to have them. Have many of them.  Have you seen these darling stamps by Some Odd Girl?  Oh my gosh, have to have them!!  Where does the madness end!??!!  I was lucky enough to win one in a recent stamp release blog hop.  I won Dancin Mae.  Isn't she just delish?  It came to me packaged all pretty like! Love that!  Now the challenge this week at the Some Odd Girl Blog is to make a shaped card.  So I did! With my new dancin Mae stamp.  And oh my gosh is she ever fun to color!
I kept trying to add flowers and stuff but nothing looked right and this little cutie just didn't need a lot of embellishment.  This paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I should have bought stock in that company!
I used my Grand Calibur to cut out the Grand Nesties shaped card and papers. 
Can you see the added bling to her belt?  I used a copic spica pen and added a rhinestone to the center.
I had to add a little pink.  I thought she would like a pink Ipod like mine.
If you have a chance you should check out the challenge over at Some Odd Girl, it was a lot of fun!!

I am going to enter this in the Craft you days away challenge, the theme is music and dance.
Also, CES Challenge blog has your favorite color combo.
Crafty Catz Weekly asks for a sentiment.
If the shoe fits.. Scrap it has Green as the challenge.
The Pink Stamper challenged us to use Kraft cardstock for the National Scrapbook Day Challenge #2

Cute card, Bren. I love your coloring!!! I want a pink ipod, too!!! I think you are right in that she doesn't need any embellishment. Your card is perfect as it is.

Hello Brenda - I just popped across to say thank you for your lovely comments on my Blog - it makes my day! I also wanted to let you know that you can use the Tim Holtz Die with the Cuttlebug - it used 2 'B' plates and no 'A' plate (the thivk white plate!) I have a Grand Calibur too and love it but have not tried it on that - but will do today!!! Your card is divine Brenda - your coloursing is perfect! Thank you Brenda! {{{hugs}}}
