Sweet Pea Stampers DT Card.........Swirls Of Summer

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all this morning? Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am I love love love weekends.........lie-ins & 2 whole days with the family....blisssssssssss!!!
Anyway I shall shush my babbling as its time for a new challenge over at
The challenge we have for you this fortnight is.........
Swirls Of Summer
So come & show us your swirls, as long as there are swirls & a sweet pea image then bring it along & join in the fun........of course you can also use images from Crafty Purple Frog

For my card I have used a different sort of sweet pea image.......well the image has swirls so I had to use her, she was meant for this challenge I think lol.......I've also got another 1 inked up yayyyyyyy

This is 'Shimmer' by the artist Brigid Ashwood & of course you can get her from Sweet Pea Stamps. The swirl I made with a die & then added little pink gems & a few pink pearls to it. The Gardenia I smothered in glitter & made a hat pin with some pink pearl beads.

Yes its my fave type of card.....Easel card
Paper is Websters Pages

Butterfly from ebay & the twill sentiment from Crafts & Me.

Here she is close up & because of her name I had to make sure she did shimmer so applied lots of Diamond Dust stickles.......she would not of been happy if I didnt lol. She is of course coloured with copics.
YR0000 YR000 E00 E21 R20
