Hi Everyone,

This is my second card in 3 days, not 3 weeks like before - I must be on a roll!  On the other hand, it could be to do with the rainy weather giving me more of a chance to craft.

This is my first effort with Sugar Nellie Candy Pip.  The stamp was a bit too big for the size of card I wanted so I stamped the image and then scanned it onto my computer and altered it in Word so it was slightly smaller.  Then I coloured her with Copics and fussy cut her out, which wasn't easy with that little flower and spiky hair!

I cut a frame out for her to sit on then decided to emboss the centre with a cloud folder and put it back in.  I've coloured the sky slightly with a Stampin Up marker, but I wish I hadn't when I'd done it as I preferred it white, but I suppose it shows the clouds up more. The papers are Flower Shoppe from Nitwit Collections.

The challenges I would like to enter are:

Sugar Nellie 137 - Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl - Any Image
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter 254 - Birthday Girl

Thank you for visiting.
