Sweets for my sweet...

Hello All,

Well I am back to routine with a bang ..... It all ready feels like life is a whole lot of crazy..... I have managed to squeeze in a little time for this card, now I am not quite sure about it, I'm not really sure if the over all look is right.

I am using one of the fab new manga's "Honey Bee" available here As the image had Honey and bee's in it I was thinking yellow, I hunted through my scraps and found this little piece of K&Co paper that I thought would work well with it.... So I coloured my image to go with it, and then couldn't really find any other papers to match..... so then I was stuck trying to make this strip of paper work as a whole card

I stuck it on added the stitching detail and then thought about how I would fill the white space .... So I added a "Anna Griffin" sentiment ..... which to be honest I now wish I had stamped it slightly more to the left as it would have worked better ..... but after I had stamped it, it was too late to change it ..... I was looking for a little bee stamp to fill in some of the background, but I didn't have any so I decided to add these little "Pergamano" images, as the manga image was quite quirky, I thought it may look ok. To try and finish it off I added some "Prima" flowers ...... and then desperately trying to make it look better I covered everything with Stickles ..... As I say I am unsure on the result so I would appreciate any comments.

This is my entry for:

Papertake Weekly - Mum or Girly
My Time to Craft - Ladies day
Simon Says - Mothers or Girly
Stamp Something - Something Sweet
CES - Inspired by a song ( "sweets for my sweet"....... in particular the line that says "sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey" )

Thanks for Looking
Hugs Juls

  25. Oh Juls, why the worry with this card? It looks AMAZING! I think your pergamano images and sentiment match perfectly, and as for the stripy not matching any other papers you had, I'm glad it didn't! It really holds it's own against the white and looks superb, it's clean and classic and I wish I could do clean and classic half so weel as this! Hugs. Katy. xxx
