This is one of my favourite stamps when I want to make a 'girly' card - it's a Penny Black wood mounted stamp featuring Mimi who I think is a really cute little character.  I've made a circular easel card using some Craftwork Cards paper and a sentiment stamp from Pink Gem.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and for Mimi's hair I used Sandstone, Tan and Caramel - you'll see why I'm explaining that in a minute!
