My First Simply Sassy for The Sugar Bowl!

My first Simply Sassy card - woohoo!! I have loved these since the very first release but don't get much time to make cards "just for me" as it were and didn't want to spend money on stamps that I wouldn't get time to use (makes a change LOL) but I managed to get a good couple of weeks in front of myself with DT stuff so bought a couple - yay!!! I have used Marlena's gorgeous sketch for The Sugar Bowl challenge and I've also included the extra requirement of buttons. I am also entering my card into the Colour Create challenge as I have used their colour combo of pink, blue and brown. The papers are some scraps from my stash so I'm afraid I don't have any makes for you.

Isn't she gorgeous? This one is called Fairytale. I really had a hard time choosing just two - as I have lots of favourites among them all! I've coloured her with copics and cut her out so that I could mount her onto some pink paper that I've given a "distressed" stitching pattern to.

The ribbon and button are from my stash and the charm is from The Hobby House. The button twine is from Whiff of Joy and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves were punched from kraft cardstock with a Magnolia doohickey.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
