Best Wishes.....

Hi it's Susan again, what a great sketch this was from The Sweet Stop, simple but so effective.

The backing papers were from a CD rom called Cute Companions Summer Stories, I love these backing papers they are so delicate in the colouring, and as strawberries were asked for in the All Sorts Challenge the fit the bill exactly.

All the edges were distressed and glittered using Stickles.

The ribbon and lace is from my local market.

This has to be the most adorable stamp from Belles and Whistles, with the little kitten peeking around her legs.

I coloured it in using Pro-Markers, and a soft distressing ink for the background.

The label was made on my computer. I distressed and glittered the edges and inked the background to match the card.

All the flowers are handmade using a set of punches and shaping and colouring to get the effect I wanted. I love making my own flowers, and try to put some on most cards I make.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my creation, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
