Musing Melinda for A Spoonful of Sugar


Oh my goodness, have you seen the totally delish sketch over at A Spoonful of Sugar this week, I absolutely loved making this card. Lots of layers, just like I like it lol.

I still had these gorgeous K&Co papers on my desk from the other night (yes I'm a mucky pup) and still don't know what range they are and am starting to panic as I don't have much of the pack left. I haven't used one Prima flower on this card, can you believe it!!! They are all punched, stamped and embossed. I didn't use any brads either as I didn't have any gold pearl ones and the silver just didn't work, so I stuck the pearl to the gold spacer instead.

The inside, not sure if the punching works but hey ho, it's done now.
