You're Special -Truly Scrumptious card




Can you believe this card took me two days to finish?? :) On and off, some colouring at a time (I always say I'm a nerd in colouring, won't stop putting shades and tones till I am satisfied with the result!) lol




I used one of the darling HAnglar images that Kristin sent me when I won the image candy :) So difficult to part with these! :) But I'm really happy with how it turned out. As you can see I experimented a bit with doodling with the white gel pen :)


I made this card for Truly Scrumptious challenge. I loved the sketch this week, and decided to play along. I coloured this beauty with my usual Distress inks.. Red Mohagony and Peeled Paint are the main colours. I also used Angeldust Stickles on the wings, and punched flowers my friend Lim sent me, and some Prima as well (this one from Jacque). Go and visit their lovely blogs.. you'll find some lovely inspiration.. and wonderful persons behind them there!!
I also embellished with brads, dewdrop and a metal tag for the sentiment.





On the inside I used a card quote from a Papercraft Essentials CD I had purchased some years ago. I hope you like it, and yay.. it's weekend again!! some time to play :) Hugs my blogging friend. It's an honour to have you here, taking some time to read my post. Thank you if you choose to spend some more moments to leave a comment. Know that you spread a big big smile on my face :) Also a special hug to my friends who send me these things. It is thanks to them that I can share with you these creations.




Thanks for looking

How very sweet she is! I'm glad you finished her because she's really a treat! I love all the details you used on her and that paper is some of my favorite. I love the small flowers and the pearls you used. And the inside is as beautiful as the outside. It was a real pleasure to see her!

Hugs to you,

Susan
