Twuly scwumptious..........

I don't normally post on a Saturday but this card has been lying around for a couple of days and is just itching to take flight. Rather than leave it on my dining table table any longer, to attract dust and flying food crumbs from my kids, I thought I'd get it out there.......


Now, you know how much I love Mo Mannings images, so when I saw the challenge this week on Mo's Challenge Blog for 'Things with Wings', the creative (and digestive!!) juices started flowing pretty quickly, when I decided on this image.

Of course, while I was scouting around the web, I also found a few other challenges to plunge into as well:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog : Sing It Baby - this is a pretty cool quest this week, to create a card whilst singing a song in your head! For some reason, Truly Scrumptious (hence the title of my post!) from the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (if anyone can remember that far back!!) got in there and would not leave I tell ya! I think it's the fact that both the cupcake and the fairy are pretty 'munchable'.

One Stitch At A Time : Challenge #24 - Use a little Pink (no problem there!)

Flutter By Wednesday : Challenge #116 - Use a Butterfly, Fairy or Angel and your favourite colour (I do love me the pink and green combo)

Cute Card Thursday : Challenge #124 - Whateva!

So all that said, oh yeah...........let's get to the nitty gritties of the card. I think I'll have to send this to myself cause it's just too sweet to give away! I coloured mainly with Prisma pencils and just a touch of Copics, and of course plenty of super fine glitter for the tutu/wings/cupcake. I also used some Glossy Accents on the star sprinkles and sponged a little 'chalk' ink around the image. I tried blades of grass for the first time also, and although I am no Paula Williamson....it's not a bad effort! DP's are from Pink Paislee and ribbon and sentiment button are from my stash.

Phew, that 's it. Wow, my longest post ever. Just one more thing.......an ammendment to my last post.......

I think this is my latest favourite card.......til the next one!

Oh my goodness! I am giggling over you humming the Truly Scrumptious song in your head. We got a standard poodle puppy 2 years ago and named her, that's right, Truly Scrumpious! We sing that song ALL THE TIME at our house, haha. I even happened to post a picture of her on my blog today - what a coincidence!

Okay - now about your card, it's delightful! I love how you used soft colors and lots of glitter. :) And that circle tag goes so well with the circle paper. And the swirly ribbon goes so well with the swirls on her little fairy wings. Adorable! Thanks for stamping with us at Flutterby Wednesday this week. :)
