Girly goodness :)

Good morning I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine wherever you are ! The UK has finally found a little summer and I am lovin' it ! Isn't it amazing how a little sunshine can make everything feel a little easier - it certainly brightens my mood :)

Anyway I am here to show you a card that I made for the new challenge over at MMCS - this week our challenge theme is "Birthday girls"
I can't wait to see your creations this week I just know there will be lots of ribbon, lace, glitter and all things pretty :)

I used a wee stamps clear stamp and coloured her first with my Lyra aquacolors then added shading and depth with my prisma pencils - it is the first time I tried this combination and wasn't sure if the sansodor would mix very well with the aquacolor water colouring but it seemed fine and definitely added lots more depth to the image.

The yummy DP's are from the BG Picadilly paper pad and the main frame is die cut with my fleur de lis square spellbinders. I added lace from my local haberdashery - I love the clean bright white - and flowers which I tipped with scattered straw distress ink and lemon stickles.

Here is another look (sorry about the weird angle !)

I hope you'll check out all the details over at the MMCS challenge blog - the DT have been busy making some lovely cards and projects to inspire you.

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Basic Grey challenges - Things with wings
Come & get it - BINGO (I used gems, diecuts & flowers - actually there is only one thing in the grid I DIDN't use !)
Let's ink it up - All girl
Card makin' Mamas - 1 image, 2 DP's & 3 embellies
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Use 2 or more dies (Spellbinders fleur de lis & Die-namics flat bottomed clouds)
Tammy's scrapin corner - BINGO (Ribbon, free space & flowers)
Bunny Zoes crafts challenge - Lace & swirls (swirls on frame)

Thanks for visiting me today - have a great day x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
