My First Sweet Pea Card

With Kristy's store - Delicious Papercrafting - set to open any day now I thought I'd make my very first Sweet Pea card. I managed to get a couple of these gorgeous stamps from Kristy when I was over at her house and was checking out the goodies she had in for the store. These images are just beautiful - sooo much detail that they just seem to come alive when you're colouring.

I've used my black and clear Spica pens all over this gorgeous gal - you just can't see it in this light. I've take the picture on the left to show you how glittery she is - unfortunately the picture isn't as clear as I'd hoped but at least you get to see her sparkle! I have added some stickles to the flower arrangement for some more obvious sparkle.

The DP is from Basic Grey - some 12x12 sheets I found in my stash. One day I'm going to sort through my stash and work out exactly what I have there - but for the moment it's a bit like a treasure hunt - LOL.
