Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge - Flowers, Lace & Ribbon

 Way Hay for the weekend! Time for another great challenge at the Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge. It's fabulous Francesca's turn to pick our theme this week & she has gone for 


After the dull grey of my last card, I can't tell how much I enjoyed colouring this little Sugar Nellie cutie. She's coloured with Distress Inks & the papers are Memory Box - Mistletoe.  The flowers were created with a Doo Hickey & McGill mini petals punch.

This little sweetie is one of my faves from the last Fairy Glen release, I can see her getting used a lot. I say a lot. I have too many stamps for any of them to get used too often. I really must look at selling some off on E-bay. Then I can make room to buy more, LOL!!

My fellow D-Teamies at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge also had a lot of fun with this challenge. Hop on over & check out their awesome creations. These week we are joined by the newest members of our team. 

These ladies are seriously talented so go check them out & leave them some love. 

I based my layout on the fab sketch at Sketch & Stash this week. I used old papers, but my image is seeing ink for the first time.

At Creative Inspirations this week they want to see 'lashings of sparkle'. I don't know about lashings, but she has glitter on her halo, her wings & the flowers in her hair & on her dress. Plus the gems in the flowers. So I guess that's quite a lot!

Lace, Flowers & Ribbon also happen to make the diagonal line on the bingo card at Truly Scrumptious

Hope everyone has fun over the bonfire weekend! Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
