A Little Treat...

Hi there, it's Susan here, hope you are all having a great weekend!

Although I was too late to use this sketch design for a challenge I decided to still use it, I thought it was a great sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You, I have had a good time making this card.

The backing papers for this card are from our stash, it's amazing how the little pieces that you thought you would never use come in handy for cardmaking.

All the edges have been distressed and glittered using stickles.

The punched edges have been made using a Multi Shaper allDeco Punch.

The ribbon and lace are from our local market.

This little image is from Belles and Whistles, absolutely gorgeous little stamp, I love it.

I coloured it in using Pro-Markers.

The flowers are a mixture of my own handmade flower and the smaller ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

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

Love Susan
