My first Sweetpea card


My husband decided to treat me to a Sweetpea stamp (fantastic service from Crafts and Me) and a set as I have been wanting to try these designs for a while and the images would appeal to some of my friends whom birthdays are coming up in the next few months. Here is my first attempt. I have coloured her in copics and added some stickles to the edge of the light source. The flowers are wild orchard crafts and have been glimmer misted. I hope you like x
