Just adore these new releases from Sugar Nellies - I have been wondering what had happen to the Sweet Adorables collection as I hadn't seen any releases for a while!

As mentioned in my previous post I have been trying out making my own flowers - to save a bit of money although I do hope they look as professional as the ones you purchase!

Stamps: Digital stamp - Sugar Nellies - Sweet Adorables November collection
Papers used: Huge paper stack from My craft studios 360 12" x 12" for £22.50. Had to mention in full as wasn't sure when ordered but have to admit I was lucky enough to re-order. Unfortunately unavailable now so hoping they will bring more for the same value - can't go wrong! So keep an eye out at Create and Craft.

Polychromo and primsa pencils
cosmic shimmer pva glue - for faux pearls
White gel pen
Black roller ball pen
gold embossing powder - added to flower

As above
All others Crafters Companion
Dies and punches used:
Flourishes - Marianne
Flowers - Marianne and spellbinders
McGills flower punches
Magnolia dies
Woodward daisy punch
Flat back pearls
brads for flower centres
Best wishes,

What a gorgeous card! Oh my gosh, such a beautiful image and your colors are perfect - soft, gentle and sweet.

The roses and flourishes (actually, ALL the embellishments) really work well and add to the genteel feel of this card.

Thank you for participating with our Opus Gluei theme, this works wonderfully. I hope you consider returning in the future for more challenges with us!
