Windswept! My first Simply Sassy!
This little darling happened to blow into my shopping basket - well, with the weather so windy it seemed rude not to welcome her!
The current Sugar Bowl Challenge is this useful sketch, with the option of using scraps - well, I have an awful lot of scraps, so any reason to dig into the pile is a good thing!
The base card is a rectangle, mainly because I grabbed a piece of blue card and forgot to cut it into a square - but I think the image suits the shape. I tore the strips of yellow and blue papers to give definition without using a mat, mainly because I didn't have enough of the blue base card!
The lace is from Hobbycraft, the flowers are Wild Orchid, with leaves punched from another scrap of paper behind them. The gems are Paperchase. I stickled with Waterfall on the frills of the dress and round the oval shapes. The sentiment is a freebie from a mag.
I'm entering The Sugar Bowl Challenge - I used the sketch and lots of scraps!
It's not as blowy today, thank goodness, and there's sunshine out there! Today I saw a Comma butterfly in the garden - beautiful rust and black wings, with a lovely indented edge. Very pretty!
Have a good day, everyone, and thanks for looking!
luv, Mags x
