Hi there Susan here, hope you like this card, it was a totally different shape for me, I usually make square ones! Oh well life's about change, and I did enjoy working from the Fussy and Fancy Sketch this week.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the swirl is my own hand made version. I don't think I will ever be allowed near the pearls again, they were flirting all over the place when I was constructing this swirl, and as my family already know I'm not good near liquids, if there is liquids around I just seem to home into them and well you can guess what happens, now they know it is the same near loose beads!! Oh well I try.

The backing papers are from daisyd's, I've had this in my stash for ages.

This is the first one of my little Penny Black stamps, love these little stamps they are so charming...

Who couldn't love this little hedgehog swinging on a flowery rope...

And this little one, my favourite of the three, I've used her lots of times. I coloured all three in using Pro-Markers.

The ribbon and lace is from my local market.

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
