Simply Red ;o)

Helloooo Sassy fans! Hope you're having a fantabulous Sunday and you didn't forget to put your clocks back one hour, it's lovely having a whole extra hour of weekend isn't it :D! For your inspiration today I have used the scrumptious

Sundae Service

I wasn't at all happy with the last card I made with this beauty, so she's been used for a retry ;o). Also, I got the new set in the other day and let me tell you: more scrumptiousness is on the way!!! So start saving them pennies, thank goodness Christmas is coming up right ;o)

I have used lots of die-cuts on this card and little else, as the busy paper combined with the die-cuts and the flowers make for a pretty full card I think. Also, I'm not one for "throwing" everything I have at a card and see what sticks, some people carry that off brilliantly but I'm not blessed with that talent ;o).

Card Ingredients:
Simply Sassy "Sundae Service"
Paper: Bazzill Basics and Elzybells Art Stamps cardstock; My Mind's Eye paper "Be Loved"
Embellishments: My Mind's Eye die-cut sheet; Kars adhesive pearls
Tools: Marianne Design frond; QuicKutz flowers
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks)
Y28, E53, E50 (hair)
BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10 (blues)
R29, R27 (reds)
R22, R21 (pinks)

  4. Simply adorable :) Hugs, Marion

  5. I like your use of kraft elements in this - especially that frond & how they match your colouring of her hair. The pearls add a lovely touch & I particulalry like the way they echo those spots of the pink circular panel in particular but also the smaller spots of the other patterned papers.
