By Jove I Think I've Done It!

Welcome Peeps to the Simply Sassy Release 6 Blog Hop,

Woo Hoo, we all love the Sassy Girls don't we and Release 6 will certainly get your creative juices flowing.  I have used "Carnival Balloon" from Funky Kits and paired her with the Carousel from Make It Crafty.  I can see that she can be used for so many ocassion cards so I'm sure she'll be a favourite.  Now if you've arrived from Autumn's blog, then your on the right track, if not hop on over HERE and start at the beginning.


Well if your a follower of mine you'll know that I love my embellishments and really struggle to create something clean and simple but by jove I think I've done it here, well it's probably the closest I'll ever get to it.  
I have stitched the panels using my sewing machine and coloured my gorgeous images using copics and a few prisma's and added a bow, voila done.

Next on the hop is Kathrin, have fun and I'll see you tomorrow for some more Sassy inpsiration.

Recipe:-
Carnival Balloon image from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits HERE
Carousel from Make It Crafty HERE and soon to be available in rubber at Quixotic Paperie HERE
Medium Copics/prismas 
Papers are from Nitwits Bigtop collection
Cardstock is Bazill
Star Dust Stickles 

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-
Delicious Doodles - All stitched Up
Fussy and Fancy - Card for a child
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Outlawz - Give your image some background
Little Miss Muffett - Glitter and Shine (hopefully my gold carousel is shiny and I glittered the flying ribbons)
Simon Says Stamp - Card for a child
Digital Tuesday - Little Women

When you've finished the hop, just click on the Funky Kits Badge below to take advantage of the special hop price of buying all of  Release 6 for the price of 5, for the duration of the hop which ends on Tuesday.

Paula said...

And since I'm commenting backwards (after my comment on Monday's card regarding your style - I now have to eat my words...... This is stunning & in fact is very much you - the way you create scenes with your images; now you cannot have such exqusite scene building & then cover it with your embellishments. This just makes me smile & I love your tabs with the pearls.
