A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 27 - Blooming Marvelous!

This week for our challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar we are asking you use blooms/flowers somewhere on your card - you could always just use flowery paper! A nice easy challenge so no excuses not to join in and you might be lucky enough to be chosen as our random winner to win a great prize from Helene owner of Alota Rubber Stamps.

We would like to welcome Gill this week as our Guest Designer. You can check out her gorgeous creation on her blog.

For my card today I used some gorgeous products sent to me in my Silly Monkey DT kit. I just love the cute Pink Tilda and as you can see she is great for any occasion with her little christmas hat which I cut on my Cricut. I used cartridge Paper Dolls and cut the hat twice.. once on BG Wassail paper and then again on the glitter card. I added a dew drop to give the bobble dimension. I also paper pieced Tilda's heart in the same paper. I just love this gorgeous Bo Bunny paper which I customised with the SU tag punch and got Zoe to handwrite it. Underneath the tag the paper said "Love Emma" so thought it would be neat to personalise it. You might notice that all my Tilda's with plaited hair are coloured brown as they remind me of Zoe!

Hugs,

Nikkie this is just wonderful. I absolutely love it, especially the way you pieced it all togther. LOVE Zoe's tag as well. Isn't it funny about the way we colour the hair on our images. I never noticed that you always use brown, but I can see why you do. I seem to do most of mine blonde, probably because it reminds me of my girls and grandaughter. Hope you are well hunny xxxxx
