Well better late than never. Had a busy weekend (it seems to have flown by) i finally finished a card. The image is by Sarah Kay coloured with copic markers and shaded with prisma pencils (i love the effect this gives) The papers are from Nitwits (digi download). The cardstock is from Stampin up. The gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used some Stampin Up Red taffetta ribbon. I made the tag myself and added a Fizzy Moon sentiment. I need to practice with my camera i think my cards always look wonky !!!!! It is straight in the flesh !!!
Well off to bed as i have to be up for work tomorrow :(
Good Afternoon, i just thought i would show you the Hanglar card i made with the New 'Sailor Kids' Kit. Anyone who knows me knows what a Hanglar & Stanglar addict i am !!! The image is coloured with copic markers and shaded with a black Prisma pencil. The papers are a digi download from Nitwit Papers. The cardstock is from DCWV. The stars were punched from the SU star punch. The ribbon is from SU and is Daffodil Delight (such a gorgeous colour) The buttons are also Daffodil Delight from SU. I added som twine to the centres. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley mounted onto a SU scallop.
I have also decorated the inside to compliment the outside.

I attended my SU mum Jules's craft class last night where we made these fab cards/box. The products used are from the New Stampin Up mini catalogue. The daisies were cut from a Bigz Die. We also used the Vintage Wallpaper (my favourite) and Perfect Polkadots embossing folders which are exclusive to Stampin Up. The colours are Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink and a Shimmery White Cardstock. The little gift box is cut from the Pillow Box die and decorated with daisies and Pretty in Pink Satin ribbon.
