{Southern Girls DT} Card - sugar plum birthday wishes

 Hello hello! Are you well? I hope so!

It's been a while since I have posted anything on my blog, simply because I have been run off my feet!  We spent nearly all of May interstate while The Boy received a second cochlear implant, and since we have been back I have been working really hard on a festival we are putting together at work, and preparing with The Boy for his Confirmation and First Communion.  And of course I have been sewing angel gowns, and I knitted some angel blankets while we were away.  Now that things are settling back into a routine, I'm looking forward to some more time to create!

This fortnight's challenge at Southern Girls Challenge is a colour combo, sponsored by Lacy Sunshine.  Now when you look at the photos below don't be puzzled - no need to adjust your screen - yep I really did use apricot (not orange) instead of pink.  I don't know where I got THAT idea from, but when I posted the card to our DT blog this morning I was a bit surprised LOL!!  But if you look carefully, some of the smaller flowers are a soft apricot, so *phew* :D

Card recipe:
Stamp: Sugar Plum Fairy Ethereal Enchantress (Lacy Sunshine), sentiment (retired, Stampin' Up!)
Colouring medium: copics, with ice stickles, black pen
Other: flowers, cardstock
