Sweet as...

No ice cream/lollies are the theme and colour inspiration for todays card,
set by sugar nellies on facebook.

I followed the sketch set by Maria Theresa from the sugar bowl challenge.
There was also an optional theme of using kraft card.
 I love this image 'butterfly girl' by sugar nellie,
and as always a pleasure to colour with my promarkers.
The design paper is from one of my finds on a visit to the Range in Scunthorpe this week.
It is GCD Studio 'Eye Candy' paper pad, it has some truly lovely double sided papers.
The pearls as always, are from my stash.


I cut the main shape using my cricut and the 'accent essentials' cartridge.
The pearlised green card is from my stash
and the yellow and orange card is bazill bling.
I love the shimmer from this cardstock.

I cut the flourish using the cheery lynn 'tropical flourish' die.
It is cut from a lovely self adhesive felt that I got from 
Stephen H. Smith's Garden & Leisure Centre in Scunthorpe.
Its really tactile and adds that extra depth and dimension that I love so much.
The little pink flowers are from meiflower, the picture doesn't really do them justice,
as the colours are so much more vibrant.
