Pretty Petunia

Ah, so glad it's friday, but really where did this week go? 

It's a good thing I had a couple of extra cards done last weekend, because I've been under the weather the last couple of days, and haven't felt like doing much of anything.

Although we have no challenge today, because Emily is away this weekend, I still have a card to share with you.  I pulled out Petunia Pixie, and stamped her onto bella's bestest paper.  I used prismacolour pencils and gamsol to colour her.  I took the advise of Paula and Linda as far as colouring the nest - lightest colour  on the front twigs and darker in behind - it worked perfectly.

Used my new EK  Success border doily punch for the coral layer.  DP is from SU - I think this is like 2 yrs old! I told you I'm a hoarder. Stamped this sentiment in black versafine ink and then cut it out using a s/binder ribbon tag die.
Finishing touches : stitching, Martha Stewart branch and leaf punches, seaming binding ribbon and a cream rosette by Prima, which I sprayed some Cherry Tattered angels glimmer mist to kind of match the DP paper. Card measures 
5 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Don't forget we will be back to our friday challenge next week - April 1- so bring on the Polka Dots!

Enjoy your weekend,

Maybe you've been feeling under the weather because the weather has been crappy! Hope you feel more like yourself soon. Fantastic card Pauline! Thought the nest had a fibre on it until I blew it up. Cool layout and extras! Have as good weekend. :) Tracy

OMGosh, you did an AWESOME job on the nest because my first thought was that it was actually tiny sticks that you had adhered to the card! Very cute! LOVE the colors!
