Sweet flower girl...

Well what a glorious day it's been today so I have been in and out bewtween some tidying up in the garden, washing and doing bits to this card. This is one of my favourite stamps..The flower Girl from Sugar Nellie which you buy from Funky Kits...I love her!! She has also been coloured with copics. The papers are also one of my favourites just now...Brook collection from Crate Papers. I distressed the edges of the papers and added a tiny edge of stickles, I also embossed and sanded the panel underneath the image. I didn't have ribbon that matched so I used some Stampin' Up white ribbon and coloured it green, I also added a bow the same colour and attached a button. I stamped the message and punched it out and layered that on to the scallop circle and again I added a button to the centre. I added dots at opposite corners with a brown pearl pen...just new and quite like can but them at Quixotic Paperie....and finally my fabby flowers...well I think they are fabby...these have ben cut with my favourite gadget...the sizzix 3d flower die. I hope you like this one and I have entered it in the challenges below:
