Just for you.....

Hi Susan here....

Today at Fussy and Fancy we have Groups B's examples of the ongoing challenge, where the theme is a sketch by our very own Mindy.....Take a look at the example -
For full information about the challenge and to take a look at some inspiration from the design team call across to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us.

Now onto my card.... I really enjoyed working with this sketch, it was a simple layout that left you full of inspiration.
My backing papers are from a 12x12 Scrapbook pad from Kay and Co., called 'Dollshouse'. I have distressed the edges before aging with inks on the edges, I have layered the papers onto a plain brown card. The beautiful lace and pearls are from my local market.
This beautiful little image is from Whoopsidaisy, one of four on Set 118, love these images!! I have used Pro-Markers to colour it and then gently inked the background before distressing the edges of the topper and layering onto a brown scalloped card that's edged with a ruffled lace trim and bow.
The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The sentiment was made on my computer, the edges have been inked and distressed and layered onto a scalloped piece of brown card to match the theme of my card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and for leaving all your comments, they are much appreciated. I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
