Piling it On!!


This card was made using the great sketch from A Spoonful of Sugar this week. I have used this lovely Belles & Whistles by Elizabeth Bell stamp and coloured her with Promarkers in the colours Lilac, Lavender, Amethyst and Aubergine - the colours set by this week's Passion for Promarkers. As I've also got 3 handmade flowers, 3 Swarovski gems and 3 Card Candies my card also qualifies for this week's theme of "Good Things Come in Threes" from Pile it On. This is the challenge for me - all I seem to do is combine challenges as there are so many fabby ones around!!

I have used a paper pack designed by Vanessa Arbuthnot for the English Paper Company for the backing and the flowers. Leaves are made using Martha Stewart punches. Card is SU, as is the sentiment. I've just added a bit of aubergine coloured satin ribbon to finish the card off.

I am scheduling this post as I hope I am having far too good a time with my husband to be blogging {{WINK}}.
