Sundae Bar

Afternoon and Happy Sundae.

You know how sometimes a card comes together really easily? Sometimes a card comes out completely different to the idea in your head? And sometimes you can spend hours moving things around, trying different papers and embellishments, with nothing feeling quite right? Well, this was one of those. I think it's the purple that stumped me.

Why did I need to include purple? Well, it's all down to Paper Sundaes. This week, we have a Sundae Bar, which means you can choose at least two Sundae Toppings from; Purple, Paper Piercing, yes, PIERCING, Wings and Gems. The only one I didn't use was gems. I could have, but it would have taken me even longer to decide where to put things. And yes, there is paper piercing there, it's a little lost around the edges, but it's there.

We're sponsored by Stamp and Create this week, pop over to Paper Sundaes for all the details and to see the faberoony cards from the rest of the Sundae Girls.

Right, the sun is out, I need to get outside beforer it goes in again! Have a fabby Sundae!
