Spoon Full of Sugar

Oh I am such a dip-stick sometimes! I made this card on Tuesday night and Wrote the post last night, but I forgot to publish it!

I made this for the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge. There is a wonderful sketch by Caryn this week, but I'm not sure I've done it justice. I thought it would be great to add a bit of stickles to my swirls and in real life they do look good - the camera makes them look pretty rubbish though (sorry).

The stickle blobs added to the satin flowers actually look a bit like diamante - but the camera let me down again.

Brazzill Basics card, Basic Grey Euphoria papers
Penny Black Hearts Away stamp
Sizzix Flower and Vines #2 (swirls)
Just Pots Funky Flowers, Crystal Ice stickles
Nesties, Watercolour pencils, Blue Ink it Up! pad
Navy ribbon.

Your card looks fabulous Sharon, stop being so hard on yourself. I really love how you have coloured this cute hedgie, super dp and details. You do make the most beautiful inserts - must give this a try myself one of these days as it really finishes off all your hard work perfectly. -x-

You more than did it justice Sharon, it's gorgeous. I get frustrated by the camera not doing my glitter justice too! There should be a glitter setting built into ALL cameras in my opinion!!
You did a great job on the sketch. Thanks for playing along at CCC this week.
