Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 52

Evening ladies, the antihistamines that I am taking for my hay fever have finally started to work, so I am feeling much better now! and thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

I have made another card, tag and envelope combo although I'm not sure how long I can keep this up as it takes so long to make everything!!

This is another one for my etsy shop, when I finally get it up and running, so it will be interesting to see if I can actually sell anything!!

I'm going to enter this for A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 52 where the theme is celebrate, a nice easy one!

I have used my Gorjuss Girl sitting yet again (groan) and she is coloured with distress inks.

The papers are from Laura Ashley and the embossed panel has been done with a border folder from the set "frills".

I have used the same layout for the inside of the card and the sentiment is from the Whiff of Joy General Sayings set.

I have used my oval nesties to cut out the sentiment and also to provide a place to write a greeting. I have just got a tan mat to do embossing with my nesties and I am really pleased with the effect it gives, I think it makes such a difference.

I have used my fiskars threading water punch for the edges along the bottom and the Dp has been sponged around the edges using tattered rose.

Finally, my matching tag and envelope.

Card/Paper: White and pink card, Laura Ashley - Contemporary
Stamps: SN Gorjuss Girls - Sitting, WOJ - General Sayings
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, peeled paint, worn lipstick, antique linen
Embellishments: American Crafts ribbon, pearls
Tools: Cuttlebug, border folder from "Frills" set, fiskars threading water punch, sponge, water brush.
