Anyone for some bubbly?


Yet more fab stamps that I couldn't resist, this time from the Cheeky Cherries range from the Greeting farm-love their retro feel!  Coloured with promarkers and again, I used BG papers - Nook and Pantry again  - can't get enough of BG papers at the moment.  Had the idea to sit her on the edge of a champagne glass a la Dita Von Teese but the Magnolia stamp I had wasn't big enough so I copied it free hand but sized it up!  It doesn't show on the photo but I also glossy accented it to make it look like glass!! 
Sentiments and letters are from Cosmo Cricket and flowers are Prima Hydrangeas.  I also thought I'd try a set of the Nellie Snellen nesting dies and I must say they give a great result as you can see on the centre circle.
 
Card has been sent to my friend Lesley, thanking her for a great  crafty day at her house last weekend. Two challenges for this card - Cupcake Crafts No 83 where the theme is Food and Drink, and Quirky Crafts challenge, no 24, that I've just discovered, as they want flowers and cute!

and I am chuffed to bits to own it now, Julie! Nellie looks way cool sitting on the edge of a beautifully hand drawn glossy glass and is coloured to perfection. I love the papers, flowers and central feature but mostly I love the sentiment! Lots of love, Lesley
