Went to town on this one!!!

This was only s'posed to be a 'quick' Good Luck card for someone in work - but by time I'd looked at a few challenges to incorporate, and then got the sketch all wrong so had to ditch that....it had turned into this....

For the gorgeous SugarNellie image I used my Prisma Colours and blended with Sansador. I'm quite pleased with how easy it is to get a half decent result with these pencils EVERY time!

The Flowers are of course from WOC and a few of them have been Tinklet'ed! The swirls were a RAK that I changed the colour of with some Distress Ink, a few headed pins and sticky backed Pearls to finish off.

I made the lace flower with the bit left over after I'd framed the image and sentiment and added a gorgeous button in the middle.

The brown and gold ribbon came off a posh box of chocs that my darling Hubby bought me today (well yesterday actually) for our Anniversary!

Some challenges I'd like to enter my card into...

Simon Says Stamp - Make your own embellishment - My lace flower!

Truly Scrumptious - Swirls and Pearls

Dutch Dare - Sparkle, Glitter, Bling!
