The Sugarbowl challenge

Oh I am having such a lovely day, the sun is shining and I have the whole day to craft whooppeee ! I have made this card for the challenge over at The Sugarbowl it is such a lovely sketch to use and the please include option this week was cream and brown. My gorjuss girl is coloured with my copic markers, I made use of the sewing machine being out again and added a bit more texture with some stitching around the mats, I also added a few small paper flowers around the bottom of the ' wall ' area to help tie all the colours together.

I have used Kaiserkraft paper and some cherry blossoms which seem to be a staple part of most of my cards at the moment lol, and have added a few cream punched leaves and a small epoxy sentiment to finish it off.

Sorry the photos are not the best, I really MUST work on those, I think I am just too keen to get on with the cards that taking the pics is a necessary evil for me, oh well, c'est la vie !
