My next card is for A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge No. 52, and they are 1 year old! So the theme this week is to create a card for a Celebration. I have used a Sugar Nellie stamp from the Leanne Ellis Collection called Fizz, and she has been coloured with Watercolour Pencils. I think I still need a lot of practice using WC Pencils! The bottle and bubbles have been covered with Glossy Accents, for some added texture. The image has been cut and layered on pink and green card. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey paper pad called Bittersweet. I also ran two strips of pink and green card through a Fiskars punch. And to finish the card off a stamped sentiment, a strip of ribbon, some pink gems, and pink and green paper flowers, all from my craft stash. Many thanks for stopping by, and hope you enjoyed your visit.
