Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 26# Blooming Marvellous

My Very First Blog Challenge entry !

How exciting and nerve racking at the same time! My very first entry into a blog challenge. This is for the Spoonful of sugar challenge 26 - Blooming Marvellous.

I made this card for one of my Christmas Cards and as it has flowers on thought it would be ideal to enter the challenge. It sort of has a floral paper behind the stamped image of Herb and friend from Whiff of Joy.
I am going to have to invest in more ribbons and flowers of varying colours for these challenges and edge punches I think ! What a shame!

I have coloured Herb with bird from Whiff of Joy with water colour pencils and Koi brush and added some stickles for sparkle in different colours.
The papers are DCWV - Christmas Stack which I seem to have had since last Christmas ! lol.
The ribbon and flowers are from my stash and I have put several flower heads together with a brad for effect. The sentiment I made myself on Publisher with the middle sentiment from Whiff of Joy.

Hope you like it!


p.s. still can't work out how to get box off my sig !!! lol
