SCSC #45, A spoon full of sugar #65



Hi everyone, a card today for SCSC with a theme of fancy corners and also for A spoon full of sugar where the theme is travel which I'm hoping I can just about get away with as the image is a pram and you travel in a pram :D.
I've used my retro pram digi soon to be available in the digi shop and coloured it with markers then sponged around the edges with distress ink. The background layers are Bazzil embossed card and pink Core'dinations card which I've sanded, embossed with the CB swiss dots folder and punched with a MS punch to give a fancy corner. I used a corner rounder punch on the inner pink layer. Added some stickles, sparkle gel pen, flowers and punched leaves to finish. I have a new blogger quirk today, it's starting to become quite entertaining wondering what will go wrong next :), when writing my post although I've done nothing to change the font or anything else with the type, as I typed all the text is being put in as a link, highlighted and underlined! I'm sure they're trying to fix it as I type :). Have a good day. TFL. Chris x

This card is stunning. I wish I had the talent to draw instead of just colouring in. How did you get those notches into that lovely second frame, the one with the swiss dots pattern on it?

Will look forward to getting another of your gorgeous stamps when this one becomes available.
