Just Magnolia 14, Sketch Saturday 60, A spoon full of sugar 61

Hi everyone, a card today for three challenges where there's great inspiration from the DT's, Just Magnolia 14 - Buttons, I have three, Sketch Saturday 60 a lovely sketch which I've flipped and A spoon full of sugar - Swirls, I've embossed my card blank with the swirly flowers folder and there are some swirls in the K&Co PP. I've watercolured my image with distress inks and then cut her out and mounted her over the Nestie Labels die cuts. The cream bazzil card blank has been sponged with peeled paint as have all the papers and die cuts. Added some pink ribbon, buttons [thank you Martine :)], a doodlebug rub on and stardust stickles to finish. TFL. Chris x
