Another Scrumptious Spoonful: 'hugs to you'

My card today is for Spoonful of sugar challenge, again (yesterday's card was for the last challenge which I just caught in time)! Today's is for the new challenge out, 'floral fantasy' and is my guest DT card. Thanks to Debbie for inviting me, I had fun with this one!

I've combined it with the sketch over on 'Truly scrumptious' and have used 2 of my newish (been sitting waiting a while!) Bildmalarnas stamps. The name did make me chuckle, she's called 'Tossa' and I've masked her and stamped the flowers twice behind her. Well the theme is flowers so wanted to make sure I had plenty on there! I think she's cute but hubby said she was ugly but what does he know!

I've sprayed some of my homemade pearl ex shimmer spray all over the card and flowers but it was hard to capture on the photo. Think might see it bit better in this second shot plus couldn't decide which angle/lighting looked better so you can have both . .

  • Images: 'Tossa' and the flowers are Bildmarlarnas stamps (got mine direct but I know Nikki has them in her store too). Sentiment from an old Hero arts set
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Papers: MME 'Wild Asparagus'
  • Tools: MS fence border punch (just about see it running behind ribbon), EK retro flower punche & woodware 'sakura' flower punch, MS butterfly punch, twig punch
  • Others: paper roses, pearl ex mixed with water spritzed all over for shimmer, faux stitching, pearls

Thanks for popping by and all the lovely comments - always much appreciated! Have a good day.
