Someone Special ....

Hi Susan again with another card to show you.

This was made using a sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog, I turned the sketch on its side for a slightly different look but still keeping to the sketch.

I have used a selection of candy coloured paper from my stock, sorry can't remember where its from. I thought the stamped image called for lots of soft candy colours and textures so thats what I used.

The lace is from my local market as always, love shopping around for ribbons and lace.

This is a wooden based stamp from Penny Black which I love. I have coloured it in using soft toned chalks and the flowers on the image I coloured in using Pro-Markers. I mat and layered it using Nestabilities.

The large yellow/orange flowers I made myself using a punch, and colour edging the petals with inks then shaping and putting together with a spacer and brad in the centre. The smaller flowers are from Bunny Zoes Crafts which I edge coloured to match my colour scheme.

The label I made on my computer, and mat and layered it to match the main image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my creation, I hope you like it.
Love Susan


  1. Hi there Mam,
    Congrats for winning the Aud Sentiments challenge!! This card is very different - I love the bright flowers and the spots and dots. It's a real different look when the edges haven't been distressed, wouldn't think it would make that much of a difference but it makes the papers look real bright and sharp. I love how this card looks like it would be suitable for baby right through to adult, pretty card Mam.
    You're both doing so well now and hope you both win tonnes more competitions soon!!!

  2. What an adorable card Susan ! You have chosen just the right colour scheme for your sweet little elephant - so cute - Your flowers are always gorgeous... And the round sentiment is such a good idea, like an echo to the topper, just perfect... Hugs and smiles from Catherine
