Delicate Sugar Nellie

Sometimes you make a card and think it's OK but sometimes you make a card and it works beyond your expectation and thats the case with this one. Have to say the camera hasn't done it any favours and washed out some of the delicate colours. I made this for the Bling challenge on Cute Card Thursday, I was going to be cheeky and just have the gem on the envelope and her necklace but I felt it need something in the corner and three little matching gems were ideal. I used BG Wisteria, no surprise there and I've used Nessy's sketch on Just Christmas and Birthday Cards.
I love my grown up kids but gosh when they in the house its like a hurricane and all my plans to have crafty day was hindered and of course in the evening it was Britain's Got Talent and I believe the British Public got it right Diversity was absolutely brilliant, the whole programme was wonderful not sure the variety show can ever be as good.

Welll I think your card looks stunning I did this challenge to but felt something was missing still but at 12.00 last night I just left it how it was lol i will add a bloom or two later.
I agree with you about BGT diversity were definetly the best the hit the spot when they incorparated the buzzers and judges into their dance so cheeky.
have a good day i told you the sun would shine for your barbecue today lol enjoy.
