Card for Lesley- and Spoonful of Sugar!


I can upload this now that my friend, Lesley at Grenouille Greetings has had her birthday!   This is Christmas Morning Tilda but think she works for any occasion, especially at this time of year when it's still wintery and the days are dark and gloomy!  I've used Nestie Tag labels for the sentiment and another set of nesties to layer up this little lady - I made four layers out of two two nesties, by cutting them as usual in my bug, then using the same size label and cutting round the outer edge by hand with my craft knife.   I think, therefore, this qualifies for the lots of layering challenge over on A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge this week!!

 I've distressed all the edges of the papers which are a mixture of Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey.  I've used a Martha Stuart corner punch (from an around the page set), a Stampin Up punch for the little flowers and the retro flower punches from EK Success.  The jute ribbon is from Quixotic Paperie and  rest of the bits and pieces are from stash!
