A Spoon Full Of Sugar, and Cupcake Craft Challenges.

Good Evening,
Well, i have enjoyed my afternoon of craft. I am permently in my bedroom... ahh well, at least i'm not stuck in front of a playstation or making chaos on the streets lol! :O)
Anyway, onto the card. I am entering this into the: A Spoonfull Of Sugar Challenge, this week the theme is summer, and Cupcake Craft Challenge who's theme is also summer.
I think my card is quite summery, i've used some delish K+Company double sided papers full of my favourite colour combo: blue, green, cream and pink!
The adorable little fairy is Pink cat Studio image which i recieved from the lovely Sem, which i've watercoloured with whispers. I also added a little gem to the flower on her wand.

Here's a Close-Up:

Do you like my flowers... i created them with white peel-offs which i stuck onto patterned cardstock and cut out, i then added centers with buttons and card candy gems.

Paper and cardstock: K+Company, and PM
Image: Lilly from Pink Cat Studio
Embellishments: Doodle-Bug rub-ons, ( i'm so addicted lol) Anita's ribbon, Craftwork Cards Card Candy, and the rest is froms stah.

Card Number 2:

Do you like?
This has got to be the best card i've ever made... i'm actually really pleased with myself.
I've used the sweet little Sugar Nellie iamge which a coloured with whispers and watercolour pencils.
I've added more peel-off flowers again, they're so easy to make, and save me a lot of money compared to my expensive petallo fabric flowers lol!
I distressed the paper with ancient page ink too, i really love the effect this gives.

Paper and card: Basic Grey and Doodle-Bug
Image: Sugar Nellie
Embellishments: Handmade flowers, buttons ad gems from stash.

Thanks for visiting me, please leave acomment if you have time... i loev reading them.
I'm off to the High School tomorrow and Thursday, (as a tester, ready for Semptember) so they're probably be no more cards until Friday latest.
