My sweet friend...

Hi, Susan here with my DT card for Fussy and Fancy.

This is week 2 of the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy and Group B's turn to show our cards to everyone!! The challenge is Scallops, Stitching and Sparkle, so good for girly cards, don't you think!! Our sponsor is Stitchy Stamps and I have had the pleasure of working one of their digi stamps for this card.

Please try and call across at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog for full details of the challenge you can then join in the fun with us all, you still have time it doesn't close until Thursday 29th July.

Now back to my card. I have used a sketch that was shown on Quirky Crafts, loved it!!

My backing papers are all from my stash, books that were bought ages ago and just had a few pages left to be used. Lucky for me they were just what I wanted!! All the edges have been distressed and glittered with Stickles. Well the card is girly girly, so you have to have glitter!!

The lace and ribbon is from our local market.

This is the beautiful digi image from Stitchy Stamps, her name is Bashful. I coloured it in using Pro-Markers and inked the background. The edges were distressed and glittered with Stickles.

My flowers are a mixture of handmade and some from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. I took a lesson from Emma and made a tissue paper carnation with a deep pink pearl brad for the centre. There are also some white glass flowers in the spray from Emma's cake decorating box. All the flowers have been glittered with Stickles.

My sentiment has been made on the computer, the edges again have been distressed and glittered. I have mat and layered it onto a scalloped piece of card to match the background strips.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

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

Love Susan
