Nutcrafter's Card

Good evening. A late post from me today.  Been around to see my mum and dad this afternoon and Chris has taken dad fishing, so we've left mum in peace and Emily is upstairs revising for her A levels and I've had a lovely time making this card for another work colleague. 

I've used this fabby stamp from Nutcrafters called 'Hatter'.  Isn't she lovely.  I've coloured her with Promarkers.  The backing papers are from the free pad from My Minds Eye called 'Pretty Please'.  The flowers are from Home Bargains and the sentiment circles are LOTV.  The glitter card is a new buy from Wilkinsons.  I went in on Tuesday and they have got lots of new crafty stuff.  I have tried a bit of stitching around the card but not very succesfully.  Don't look too close please as the needle got stuck and the cotton bunched up so had to cut it.  Think I might stick to faux stitching in the future.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - The Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Stitching
Passion for Promarkers - Here comes the Bride
Top Tip Tuesdays - Open Challenge
Stamp Something - Pretty Papers
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Something from around the house

Gorgeous facial colouring & I do like that little hat with the veil; very Alice In Wonderlandish. Sounds like you've had a lovely family day.
