Truly Scrumptious # 44 and Flutter By Wednesday # 129

Got a chance to make another card last night.  Hubby now has "Man Flu" and says he got it from me, although I am now feeling a lot better.
I am entering my card into two challenges :-
Truly Scrumptious # 44 - Follow sketch and optional theme of petals, pearls or pins.  I have used a few flowers as I don't have any pearls or pins (when I had completed the card, I realised I had stuck everything done wrong, so this means the sketch was rotated, so the card opens up rather than out) and
Flutter By Wednesday # 129 - Open theme but use a fairy, butterfly or angel. I used fairies and there is a little butterfly on the sentiment too.

I got this stamp this week.  It wouldn't have been a usual choice for me as I am not really into fairies or angels. I got it free when I purchased a couple of stamps from Funkykits (Sugar Nellie). So thought I would use it for these challenges.  Was nice to colour but quite intricate in places.

Carblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Paper - Cosmo Cricket (DeLovely)
Image - Sugar Nellie
Coloured with Distress Inks (also shaded a little blue and green on the image, don't think it worked too well)
Woodware Punch
Brads - Doodlebug
Sentiment - Elzybells

Thanks for popping by. Hope you are having a nice weekend whatever you are doing.  I hope to make another card tonight while watching the X-Factor.  I am not really enjoying it this year but you think you are missing something if you don't watch it.  Although I have to take Sophie to the cinema and collect her later and leave her friend home and collect Shannon from work.
