Icecream and Pickles

Don't you just love this stamp?! Another fab image from the lovely Krista Smith. I made this image up previously, but with a much 'louder' colour palette. I'm so happy with this soft muted compilation and just love the gorgeous lace which is from the lovely folks at Wild Orchid Crafts. The papers are from the amazing stash I won recently from the hugely generous Bev Rochester. I still can't believe I won them and I'm having the best time using them. I loved the butterfly paper in particular and thought it would be fun to use one of the little ones to make an extra embellishment. I'll have to come back with the paper names, as I can't find the list right now. The pearls are from Mei Flower and I've distressed and inked the edges of all the panels with Tim Holtz Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye. I also added a drop of glossy accents to her eyes to make them shine and to the cherry on top. This card was made for someone I love very much, who shared very happy news I thought might never come, so over the moon!


I am entering this card into the current 'Saturated Canary' challenge, which is 'Dotty'. I think my hokey pokey icecream and the spotty backing paper should fit the challenge :)

I have also entered this card into the 'Passion for Promarkers' challenge 165 - Lace & Swirls. The lace on my card is delish and the swirly background paper fits the challenge, so fingers crossed, they'll like the journey my Promarkers took! :)

Thanks for looking today. Let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. Hugs, Wends x

Hey Wendy

How are you? Your card is just beautiful - I love this SC image - just perfect.
I'm so sorry I haven't been to see you for a while - my internet has been poorly.

Thank you for leaving me some lovely comments.

Have a great weekend.

Take care
