Be Your Own Hero - Stampingbella

This is Stampingbella`s Hayley the Hero and I just love this image and the message.  I made this card with a special little girl in mind... it`s a perfect sentiment and image for her.
The challenge at Stamping Bella`s Bellarific Friday this week is a sketch and they are usually so easy to follow and the images seem to be made for them.  Here`s the sketch:
I have to admit, doing all the folds in her cape was a real challenge and although I`m not entirely happy with it, I will give it a passing grade.  Those are hard to do!  I cut her one foot out and placed it on to the sentiment banner and am quite happy with that effect.
Not sure if you`ve seen it or not and I am not affiliated with Stamping Bella in any way but she`s got a new release out and some of the cutest images ever.  My bundle of new rubber should be arriving any day now.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
