Michelle's blog candy

Michelle at Card Grotto is doing a Blog Candy, I like many others have loved Michelle's cards since Do Craft and have stalked her blog since the beginning!!!

The mission, should you choose to except it, is to make a new thank you card, one that has not been used in any other challenge.

I covered a square card with this spotty and flower paper from Pink Petticoat. I then embossed some lilac card with the Cuttlebug folder, used my new corner punch and added a couple of prima flowers with brads to the top left hand corner. I then stamped my favourite nellie and used a combination of watercolouring and paper piecing (using the same shade paper from Pink Petticoat). My nellie was cut out and added to the right hand side and then a Craftwork Card Thank You greeting added to the embossed card. To finish off stickles was added round the edge of the greeting and also to my nellie's dress and headband.
