Fussy and Fancy Group B Josie in a Hat...

Hi Susan here...

Well today we are half way through the challenge at Fussy and Fancy and its the turn of Group B to show you some inspiration....for full details of the challenge call across to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog. Below is the sketch that is the theme for the challenge.

Challenge 36

Our sponsor this time is Simply Betty Stamps, and she is offering our random winner 6 digi's from the Sweet Goth Kids line! Here's an example of these super-cute stamps!

And Now for my card....

I have so enjoyed using this fabulous sketch. I have used backing papers from Friday Freebies. Absolutely amazing the freebies from here, the colours are so soft on this particular range. I have used a Martha Stewart Punch for the diagonal border and added stickles to the edges. The ribbon and pearls as usual are from our local market.

The edges of the card I have used the same Martha Stewart Punch. My flowers are from Hobby Craft, the leaves are from the backing paper cut out using deckle scissors and added depth by shaping with a ball tool.

This is one of my favourite images designed by Marina Neira, it is called Josie in a Hat and is available in digital and rubber from The Stamping Bazaar Store. I have used chalks to colour the image. My sentiment has been made on the computer.
