Duet of cards

I was checking the CPS blog for some inspiration for their latest sketch CPS107 and noticed they were using word stamps which reminded me of the fab word set I got from Butterfly Kisses so I decided to use this one and to add a butterfly its been a while since I used one, then as I was starting to choose BG papers I remembered Basic Grey challenge was for rounded corners which inspired the rest of the card. I believe the papers are Sugared but most was loose I know they're BG but it could be from another set.

So this is the card that gave me such a headache yesterday, I wanted her to have a shining Umbrella but the glossy accents wouldn't leave the bottle, only in tiny blobs so I binned it of course I probably wouldn't have if I didn't know that I had a brand new bottle. Which after I used it on the umbrella and I moved the piece of paper it was on to a safe place while it dried, it flipped over, so I then had to either repair it or do it all over again. Eventually I managed my shining umbrella but it you noticed its cracked a little that was not leaving well alone till it properly dried. Luckily the new bottle worked well and I managed my raindrops. The stamp is dream 2 stamp and I've used Sketch and Stash sketch although I turned it upside down, I could be cheeky and say the little heart gem on the flower to break the plainness was for Spoonful of Sugar challenge but I won't.

Had to laugh, me and glossy accents don't get on at all - so much so I've given up on them completely - wish I had a penny for every time I've thought .... umm is that dry yet - errhh no and now it's stuck to my finger !!
