Isn't she a Sweet 'n Sassy Girl?

I just adore Sweet 'n Sassy by Elisabeth Bell.  I find her the cutest little button ever and never tire of colouring her in.  I thought she would suit the challenge at Cute Card Thursday perfectly as their challenge #97 is Blooming Gorgeous and to me she is just that!!!  As time is of the essence in this very busy world of ours, I've combined this challenge with Colour Create Challenge and coloured her in using soft pinks, blues, greys and whites. I've used this overall colour scheme for my card as well.  The DP is very old stash which has come in very handy now. I didn't want to detract from the DP so the embellishments are few but still effective.  A few roses in keeping with CCThursday's feature for flowers... Added a pale soft organza ribbon in keeping with CCChallenge's request to keep it feminine and pretty. Please note the gorgeous Sparkles in each corner which I received today from AnnaBelle Stamps. This is what I chose with the voucher I won in their challenge. The colour is Blossom. They have an amazing range of colours, it was a very difficult decision to make, but now that I have it in my hands, I'm pleased with my choice. I hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it and I'd love to read your comments, if you'd like to leave one.

Here's a peek at the inside... as per usual I've used the gorgeous DP for the inside.

And here's another angle to show off the roses which I've glittered for some sparkle.

It's 12h45 Sunday morning for me.  I look forward to catching up with you later during the day and wish you all a blessed Sunday, hugs Sharon x
