Rosie - Sugar Nellie


Finally I get to post again.  Sorry I have been missing in action this week have to admit to not being in a crafty or blogging mood.  Would you believe my tumble drier has now died !!  Freezer last week.... now wondering what the 3rd thing will be???? Anyway enough moaning.
Can I welcome my new follower it is always a pleasure to have someone new joining my blog.

Today's card is one for my great niece's birthday 'Rosie' from Sugar Nellie.  I really went die crazy with this one, using would you believe 9 different dies :)


Dies used :-
SB circle,  labels 18 and new Butterfly 2, Marianne circle, Dynamics borders x 2, MB  new hollyhock stem and cherry blossom and Cheery Lynn corners.
Ribbon, backing papers and gems from my stash. Sentiment from LOTV


She is of course coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I added distress ink to her background and to the papers and liquid pearls and glamour dust for a little extra sparkle.


The inside does reflect the front.


I am entering the following challenges :-



Thanks for taking the time to look at my card. Hope the weather isn't treating you too badly
