Check it out!

Well if you are up reading this when it gets posted you are either in another country or an insomniac.  Either way good morning to you all!

This card has been created for Raise the Bar challenge this week as I am one of the Guest Bar tenders after coming top 3 last week.  The theme this week is  Apples and oranges( orange and green).  I hope you like my interpretation of the theme.

The sketch for this card was from a spoonful of sugar, but I got distracted and accidently changed it a bit!  The lovely papers are again from Pink petticoat.  The doily is from my stash and has been inked with orange and green.

This gorgeous stamp is another one of my winnings :o)  It is a sugar Nellie stamp called Party frills from the Simply sassy range.  I have coloured her with pro markers and cut her out with a Nellie snellen multiframe die that has been inked with green and liquid pearled with orange.  The skirt has been glittered. And I have paper pieced the socks and Bows in her hair and on the shoes.

These stamped flowers are from the do crafts doodles set and have been cut out and attatched with foam pads and a gem added to the middle.  The leaves have been punched.

The happy bithday sentiment is a stamp from my stash but I couldn't tell you where I got it from!

i will be entering this card into the following challenges 'Check it out!'  Checks and plaid Gingham and roses(will flowers do?)

Thank you for stopping by.  Come back soon
