Sugar Bowl 13

I have made this card for one of Lily's teachers as her thankyou card for the end of the school year. Lily has a habit of folding her arms like this when she is in the huff and it looks just like her!! I am sure that the teachers have seen her in this pose many a time over the past year so I thought it was apt! The sketch at the Sugar Bowl is by Lilian and I really like how this card has turned out. I am a huge fan of the distressed look but have never really been sure of doing it myself so I hacked the edges with my scissors then inked the edges with the brown PM and with the rough edges the ink bled right in and I have to say I like it lol The flowers etc were all from stash, the charm is a wee angel like Lily (hahahahaha) The lace was won in a blog candy it is really lovely, I will have to be really stingy with it lol

After I took the pic I realised I had planned to use glossy accents on the shoes to make them look like patent ones, it is still drying though or I would have taken another pic lol

Hope you girlies have got some good weather, we have had rain all week and although my tatties are growing well I am a bit sick of it and really really want some sun!!

Adorable Amanda, Lily's teacher is sure to love it - I always forget your schools break up much earlier than ours, we still have almost a month to go.

Have a good weekend.
