All things nice ...

This is my entry for this weeks CD Sunday challenge, the theme is 'Sugar and Spice' and I decided to go along the 'Sugar and Spice and all things nice - That's what little girls are made of'' route with my card.

The image is from the Crafter's Companion s.w.a.l.k. decoupage collection and the papers and sentiment are from the Pawfect Pals Papercrafting CD.  I have cut out the image with a Spellbinders die and added one layer of decoupage.  The border is an old Fiskars edge punch and the corners are a spellbinders die.   The pearls, button and twine are all from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Sugar and Spice
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge 26 - Cute
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge 165 - Use 2 different Patterned Papers
Lexi's Creations Challenge 87 - Punches and/or Dies

Top Tip Tuesday Challenge 98 - Girls and Boys come out to Play
Tuesday Alchemy Challenge 53 - Over the Pastel Rainbow
Stampavie and More Challenge 190 - Pretty in Pink
Stamp 'n' Doddle Challenge - Pretty in Pink

Well, that's it from me for today, it has been snowing here again - will winter ever end, I'm beginning to wonder.

Thank you for calling.
