I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Sugar Bowl Challenge #17

This card is made using the wonderful sketch on Sugar Bowl Challenge by Judy. I rotated the sketch 180 degrees as it suited my image and papers better. She is also asking for handmade flowers on the project.

I thought instead of just punching and layering the flowers I would "alter it" slightly and make my own but from a punch. Instructions are below if you want to have a go. Very easy and I love the result. I think I will be making more of these LOL! I have also used my fave papers - aren't they lush?!?!?!?

I have not put sentiment on this card as I'm not sure who to give it to yet!
