One of my favourites

This is one of the first SN stamps I ever bought and she is still one of my favourite images. I always try to play along at The Sugar Bowl as they have such great sketches and when I saw the challenge of pink and purple at Creative Card Crew thought they would fit perfectly together. The sketch at the Sugar Bowl has wings behind the image and I was puzzling over what to add to the papers, which are some of my favourite Papermania Capsule collection when I remembered I had some feathers which fitted the sketch perfectly. How many of you have feathers amongst your stash that never see the light of day? I just added 3 gems and didn't feel any further embellies were needed as the punched papers are so lush. I would also like to enter this into the challenge of stamp it out at Paperplay.

Love this Marriane, I have feathers stashed away and have only ever used them for wedding cards, but maybe it's time to drag them out, this looks fabulous.

Gorgeous card Marianne. Very pretty papers and lovely colouring. I too love this image from SN, and I've just realised I havent used it in ages. As for feathers, got bags full, never used one. Have to set my self a challenge to use them.
