Flowers, buttons, and some sparkle

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are having some fun things planned for easter. It's supposed to rain here, but I am sure the Easter bunny will find a way to hide some eggs and baskets.

Since it's friday we have a new challenge over at stamp something.


Flowers, buttons and some sparkles.


For my card I used a Sugar Nellie stamp. It has been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil, and then copics for the skin.


Papers are from a new My Minds Eye 6x6 inch paper pack and some bazzil brown card stock. Of course I followed the challenge recipe by embellishing with flowers, a button and some glitter, and I also used some sticky pearls which I colored yellow with a copic.
The sentiment is from the "Party mini letter seals" rubber stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. It's such a great set, lots of circle sentiments in it, and some other small ones that are just perfect to use on a little tag.

I also did some sewing with my janome sew mini, but it is somewhat hidden because I hadn't figured out the sketch when I was working on it. To finish it off did did some distressing along the edges and added more sparkles.

I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Our sponsor this week is Sugar Nellie, giving away a fun prize to one lucky randomly chosen winner. I hope you can play along for your chance to win.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope you'll have a

Happy and sunny Easter!
