A spoonfull of sugar challenge

Hello everyone!!

I've had a fun day today. My eldest daughter had a school assembly and parents were invited to go and watch. They did a couple of fairy tale sketches and she got to play Cinderella! She is a complete drama queen (you should see the tantrums!!) and absolutely loved this....and as a biased doting parent I thought she was great!!!

Now for a card! This is my first attempt at a card for 'A Spoon Full of Sugar' sketch challenge.

To enter the challenge there is a sketch to follow and also a stamped image must be added.

I think the elephant stamp is Prima. I got it in my local craft shop. I've stamped in black stazon and watercoloured with whispers brushmarkers.

The patterned papers are from CCSR Big One paper pack. The pink backing paper I think came from a 'fill your own box' selection at Papermill.

I had a play with the backing paper - distressed the edges, crumpled it, sanded over the top and then brushed over white fluid chalk. Please let me know what you think of it!!

The flowers are stamps from Clare Curd's new range, stamped in black ink, clear embossed, cut out by hand and then the edges curled up a bit.

I've also pricked all the edges and drawn stitching in with a black brushmarker to follow the sketch a bit.

I hope you like it! Yet again the colours on my photos haven't come out quite right - the card looks a lot more vibrant than this, honest!!
