Sweet Sunday Sketch #14

Hello Again!!! Are you sick of me yet? Gosh Please say NO!!! hahha
Another Sunday and another TWO posts in one night!!!! (Shell, I may need my Blankie AGAIN!!! hahaha).

The lovely Karen has set another BEAUTIFUL sketch for us to work with this week... here it is:-

And here is my card:-

Another Newbie for you to see. I'm trying to ink up all of my new sets at least once each this week... so far so good!!!

This time I've used 'Live Like You Mean It' a Level One Hostess Set. I've used Kiwi Kiss as the Base with a layer of Very Vanilla and some Riding Hood Red DSP from the Candy Lane Pack... ooohh do LOVE that pack... lots of PINK in it you see!!! oh and some Close to Cocoa... oooppss I digress from my card... back on track!!!! then I cut a square in Riding Hood Red and another in Very Vanilla and stamped my flower directly onto the card. I found it needed a bit of a lift so I (the Queen of Cutting small delicate little numbers!!!!) decided to restamp the flower and cut it out and pop in on some dimensionals... much better. Oh and just to make things a tad more difficult for myself, I decided AFTER I'd stuck it all together that it should probably have a bit of Dazzling Diamonds in the centre of each flower... so I'll leave it to you to picture in your mind how I attempted to do this without having the whole card covered in glitter!!!!
Oh and I mustn't forget the GORGEOUS new Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla (aaaHaa...it's Double Sided) Satin Ribbon...ooohhh it's lovely!! Again I digress... well that's it tied around the centre. Hahaha.

The sentiment is another Level One Hostess Set called Sweet Little Sentiments, and I've stamped that in Kiwi Kiss.

Hope you like.

I can't wait to try this one. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog - it's amazing to think someone whose work I've stalked for so long loves something I did!!
