With Love From Saturated Canary's Ava.

Good afternoon bloggers,

Well, isn't the weather glorious. I will not mention, at all, that it's incredibly hot, because that would sound like I was moaning, and I wouldn't dare.

I've been trying all weekend to post this card, for some reason blogger wouldn't upload my pictures. Anyway, went onto blogger help and it suggested I change my browser provider. Changed to Google Chrome and VOILA, I was not only able to upload pickies, I can now upload multiple ones. Go figure. Just have to find all my favourites now!!!!

So, today's card features a Saturated Canary digi stamp called 'Ava'. 

I used promarkers to colour her, in pastel pinks and beiges. I do love Saturated Canary digi's, the characters are all wide eyed and modern. I used my spellbinders grand labels eleven to make this card. It's a sort of a rocker with a flat bottom. The card is 240gsm linen in cream and the backing paper is from my Docraft 'Woodland Folk' cd.

I added plenty of pretty flowers and flourishes to emphasise the pretty topper. The flowers are MCS in various colours with glamour dust to the centres and the flourishes are made with my spellbinders floral flourishes die, distressed with Tim Holtz spun sugar.

To embellish I added some white gross grain ribbon from my stash and a metal flower from GSC imports. Finally, I added a with love tag from cardart, secured with a butterfly brad.

 I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
