Embellishing fun over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

Today over at A Spoonful of Sugar, we are challenging you to use ribbon, pearls/gems and flowers - our favourite embellishing items so this will be an easy, peasy challenge for you all!  This is my DT card for it...


I am really enjoying using watercolouring with my Distress Inks with these cuties from Simply Sassy that you can buy from Funky Kits.  This one is called Bad Hare Day - brilliant!  I'm really getting into my shabby chic cards although I probably should have distressed the edges a bit!  I can't help it though - I love my clean lines!  Still, I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.

And do you see that gorgeous ribbon?!!  The card was looking a bit flat but this antique gold lace velvet ribbon saved it from being boring!  I bought it from Ladybug Crafts Ink here.  I've also bought in a gorgeous pink version too - can't wait to use it!

I hope you like my card and you can see all the other gorgeous DT makes here.  Thanks for joining me and have a lovely day!

I am entering my card into this month's Bunny Zoe's challenge which is birthdays with lots of pearls and also into Make It Monday where you can just share your creativity!

I am loving these images that are coming out with the lovely big eyes and even lucious lips.
My first thoughts were wow I wish I had a bad hair day like that, but then realsised that it was hare day. Believe you me my bad hair days are more like a Stampotique (spelling???) stamp.
Love the card

Hey Mary! I am not a big sugar nellie fan (I know, gasp!) but this image and card is really cute. Have never tried the watercolors with distress inks but may have to pull them out and try after seeing your card. And yes, that ribbon is GORGEOUS! Good choice on Kerrys part!
