Creative Card Crew - A challenge by ME !

Morning ! oh what an exciting day, today it is my turn to set the challenge over at Creative Card Crew and I have a recipie for you - 2 papers, 3 flowers, 2 brads, 1 button, 1 ribbon. it is the first time I have set a challenge so I hope you like it and will have time to come and join in, we are sponsored this week by Crafty Addicts who have given us a lovely set of stamps for you to win.
For my card I have used a Sugar Nellie stamp and coloured her with my copics. I have sprayed her with glimmer mist which you can't really see on the photos, I also added some flowersoft to her bouquet. I have used 2 papermania silk screened papers, these have a lovely irridescent sheen to them which works perfectly with the glimmer mist.

The button is from my stash and I have tied a thin brown organza ribbon through the holes, this was also from my stash. The 3 flowers are by Prima and I have added 2 crystal brads which were some i picked up at a craft fair last year.

All the edges of my papers have been distressed with Antique Linen distress inks. Well ladies, I hope I have given you a little inspiration to have a go and try my recipie, I look forward to coming and seeing your yummy creations this week.
