Kick up your Heels!

This is my second "attempt" at Friday Sketchers current sketch (turned upside down)!

My "problem" with the first card (posted yesterday) is that I didn't want to hide my pretty papers with that extra the crafty girl I am, I used a piece of acetate on this card....'cos I sure wasn't hiding these beauties!! I just love the colours of the BG bittersweet range...I cut along the pattern of the middle layer to go with the flow of the swing...and I like how the pattern on the paper sorta goes with that theme too!!

I thought this stampendous sentiment just matched the gorgeous Sugar Nellie perfectly - and it just happens to fit perfectly with this week's Stamp Something (which is to make a "birthday something"!!)

I must say I was pleased with this card...there's lots of different textures on it. The beautiful prima flower is one of the beauties sent to me by Johanna! bx
