My Fancy has been Tickled!!!


If you read my previous post you would know that yesterday my BFF Tracy and I went on an excursion to get our 'fancy tickled". We visited a couple of stamping stores and loaded up on some new rubbah...and of course a few other items. What a terrific fun day.........just what the doctor ordered.
I created this card for the Spoon Full of Sugar Floral Fantasy challenge and The Pink Elephant challenge which was a recipe of 3 brads, 1 flower and designer paper. The flower was created from a tutorial on SCS which was made from designer paper with a pearl brad for the centre. Layered the white base card with aqua colour paper and cuttlebug embossed the top and added some tiny little pearls. The white strips were edged with an EK Success scalloped punch (new purchase). If you don't have any EK Success punches you must try them out.........they are a dream to use.............LOVE THEM!!! I added 2 pearl brads on each side of the flower with the white ribbon bow as the final touch.
It is such a gorgeous day today I think I am going to kick back and relax in my gazebo listening to my bubbling rock and colour up some of my new purchases.

Hey, where's the new "rubbah" ? Had a blast yesterday. Didn't get a chance to do anything but pull off the price tags and shred the receipts! Nuk nuk nuk! Your card is yummy,.....colour, pearls. and especially the flower done with your new punch. Nice work Bren!
