Good Morning...

This weeks challenge at Creative Inspirations is 
 Anything Goes + Option Of a Sketch

The challenge is sponsored by Time For Tea Designs 
and the prize for the lucky winner is 5 of their gorgeous digi's.
Today's card is made with a super cute Sugar Nellie Rubber Stamp by Funky Kits 
'Hugs For Fifi' which I have coloured with Copics.  (I had a play with the Copic Spica's again on the stars on the frock and the little dog's bow tie but sadly the ipad camera is not good at picking up the sparkle).  I used a teensy bit of Tea Dye Distress Ink Pad around the edge of the image to soften the look a bit.

I have used Kraft card and paper by Graphic 45 to create mats and layers and added some machine stitching around the edges.  

Finally I added twine, flowers and a button from The Ribbon Girl as embellishments alog with a few adhesive pearls.  (Thank you to my lovely blogging friend Kat W (Paper Firefly) who inspired me to add the pearls in a random fashion rather than a straight line).

And here we are - Hugs for Fifi, such a cute image...

I absolutely adore this card from the gorgeous rich colours to the pretty rounded corners on the DP layers to the fabulous little flower cluster - everything just works so beautifully together :-)

Of course I am biased but I think the pearls look awesome too; thanks for the mention!

Big hugs, Kat xx
