The Sugar Bowl Challenge #7

Went to check out the latest challenge over on The Sugar Bowl earlier this morning and had a lovely surprise, I'd been picked at random as the winner for their challenge 6, woohooo, how happy am I, great start to the day. I had a choice of two new stamp sets and I went for the Gorjuss set 2, so can't wait to recieve them.

Swiftly moving on to the latest challenge which is 'Spring or Easter'. I've gone for Easter but with a very spring feel.




I've used SN Gorjuss Girl- 'A Little Bird Told Me..', coloured with copics. Papers are from PM 'Venitian Skies', so love these papers. The daisies were actually white but I've coloured them using the same yellow as on the dress. The flowers are from my crafting stash, sewn together adding blue beads to the centre, once the flower was attached I tied some light blue organza ribbon around it, leaving the ends to hang from the bottom. The sentiment is stamped, cut using oval nesties then inked the edges in blue. Finished with some card candy detail. You can just see through the top of the flower the sun is streaming through, if I'd taken the picture 10 minutes earlier, there wouldn't have been any sun, there was a right blustery downpour with hail included. A sunshine and showers day I think.


Whilst trying to take the picture of the card my little fur-baby, Mollie, kept nudging me so had to take a picture of her too, she's a right little poser and as soon as she had the photo taken she went off to sit in the sun. So I thought I'd share this pic of her with you all, sorry Emma Mollie didn't want to smile for this one...lol.
