Sweet Stampin with Squiggle Stamps

Hallo again, this is a little card that I prepared for a friend of mine, who I haven't seen in a while, just juggling kiddies, jobs and other commitments mean that even phone calls have been slim on the ground. I have used an image which is fairly new for Squiggle Stamps and is just wicked to colour, effect is great. Tea 4 Two is drawn by Lauren Beard and is one of the Lilliputs range.
This card has some freebie papers on it (cardmaking and papercrafts magazine) and also I have used punches to create some multi coloured blooms with other freebie papers. Used copious amounts of glitter (sort of got carried away, you know how it is). The chipboard cut outs are from Dovecraft, courtesy of MIL and I used my new Woodware mini punches (£1 each in the market) for the tiny flower shapes and the leaves. Filled the flowers with wee little gemstones and also used a piece of purple jute that was crying in my stash box cos it is at least 7 yrs old and hadn't been used. So Jute is now happy and must say it looks magic on the card just the right colour.
I am entering this card into the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog which is (Somewhere over the) Rainbow, I am pretty sure that every colour is somewhere on this card.
Thanks for popping over to see me, hugs and smiles

PS Don't forget the latest release at Squiggles which is the all New Goth Kidz and the fun Current Challenge at Squiggles Blog which is Pink and Black with an optional 'Lace' element.

Hi Heidi, oh you must have a lovely mother in law, a rarity I believe!! Love the flowers out of your freebie patterned paper (my freebie papers usually end up in children's craft box rather than mine!). Thanks so much for playing along with Sweet Stampin xx
