The Sugar Bowl #17: 'celebrate'

Hello again! I know it's my second post today but it's the last day of the sugar bowl challenge and I want to get my card in on time for a change (you'd think 2 wks would be plenty time wouldn't you?!).

So in anticipation of my niece's GCSE results tomorrow I have made her this card using the sketch and the optional extra of making your own flowers.

I've decoupaged this cute Diane Duda image to give the card more dimension (her body and head have been stamped out few times, cut and added with Silicone glue which as usual I got everywhere so had to hide bit of it with the butterfly :/). Here's a side view to try and show the dimension of it more.
  • Stamps: 'Upside down' by Diane Duda for Sugar Nellie. The !! marks, 'celebrate' and congrats circle in 1 of the flowers are from a studio g 99p set
  • Colouring: Copics and my usual sponged distress inks for around edges and background, also around flowers and papers for more defination
  • Paper: Making Memories 'flower patch'
  • Tools: EK retro flower punches for the flowers and spiral punch for the ripped notebook page effect on the sentiment. Petite Oval nesties, Swirl punch, butterfly punch and mini circle punch
  • Others: gem brads and stickles

    O.K, that's all for today, thanks for dropping by - again! Working tonight but will try and do a little blog hop later tonight (once I get my CCT card done for tomorrow!) Have a lovely day.
