Going Places

Hi Crafters,
It's quite bright and sunny here today which certainly lifts the spirits, although it is also quite cold. We have been very fortunate and missed all the snow that lots of you have been getting, I'm thankful for that. I can't wait for spring to arrive and this leads me on to todays card. I fancied a change from Christmas and wintry scenes so I made this colourful card with a new stamp that arrived yesterday (oops I had a little spend) it was a bargain along with a few others for just a £1 each at Funky Kits.

Image - Going Places by Sugar Nellie (something new)
Papers - Up, Up & Away First Edition
Wired green organza ribbon - (Something old, from a bouquet)
Netting Trim
K&Co layered sentiment sticker
WOC and Ribbon Girl flowers
Sentiment - Waltzingmouse Stamps
She looks like she's having great fun doesn't she? I'm quite happy with how this turned out except for the hair and the camera isn't doing it any favours either, it seems to have picked out tones in the markers that aren't there on the actual card. Never mind, just concentrate on the flowers mmm.
I decorated the inside too to match the layout on the front.

Good to see you bought some new stamps, what a bargain, rude not to buy any I thought. She is so sweet and your colours zing. With my DT hat on thanks for playing in the sugar bowl and at little claire. I have never seen those slender fir dies at a reasonable price, Doohickey dies are rather expensive but I got them when I won a voucher so they didn't cost me much. I do love them
