Sweet Sugar Nellie

Here's a card for you to do... I have tried to keep the materials used to something that I know most of you crafters out there will have.
Cut a Paper Mania scalloped 12" lilac card stock in 2 and fold one piece in half. Using a souflee green pen, "stitch" around the scalloped edges. Put to one side to dry.

Stamp "Daisy" onto Bristol Board card. ( I used a Versafine ink pad) Emboss with clear powder. Colour the image with Promarkers. Cut to size and round corners with a punch. Edge with Promarker to match colour scheme. Then add a little glitter glue to her head dress.

Mat and layer scraps of matching papers onto the card base..(I have used a few of the odds and ends I have in my scrap paper box). With the souflee pen create stitching effect where papers meet.

Mount Daisy just off centre and add peel off greeting and lilac flowers. Using silcone glue, add the paper flowers diagonally of each other, and stick a diamonte in the centre of each.

Finally, add pink liquid pearl to the centres of the lilac flowers, and green liquid pearls to resemble stems.

I hope this is some help to both new and old crafters, and I hope to add more shortly.

Thanks for looking
