The Greeting Farm - Babette - Hello Card with Washi Tape

Hi guys, my craft mojo has been completely missing for days... I've really missed it... I have had zero ambition to craft. It's been quite depressing. So, yesterday, I spent the day cleaning up, and for some reason, when I spend a while cleaning up, my craft mojo returns... I also wanted to let you know, my MadeIt store has re-opened with new stock added!
So, I created this card last night -
I started by going through my "scrap" paper stash, the off cuts I've got from other projects.... and came up with three pieces. The green one is from Echo Park Dots and Stripes, the dark blue is from Echo Park (all about a boy 6x6) and her dress is American Crafts (My Girl) I coloured Babette, from The Greeting Farm, using my Spectrum Noirs, and shaded her dress using the Speccies straight onto the patterned paper, to give it a bit more definition. I then built up my card. I used some washi tape (on sale for $1 a roll at The Stamp Spot today!) to cover the join. If you want to check out the Stamp Spot Blog, there will be a bunch of uploads using Washi Tape today! 
I die cut a couple of spellbinders labels, and popped Babette on top, and added 5 roses, a combination of  paper flowers and resin flowers, as well as two rhinestones at either end. The sentiment is one that has been in my stash forever, and I rarely use... I don't even know which company it is from!
