How Sweet

  Gee am I happy three days three posts- this post was such fun to do -I've had this set of stamps for ages like about 12 months or more and have never really used it but I thought of it as soon as I decided to play in a couple of this weeks challenges.

The finished card is  just has I had planned which is unusual for me I usually start one way and finish in a completely different direction.

The colours are so cheerful- I think I'm looking forward to spring because I've started using brighter colours. This is for a couple of challenges CPS challenge- CPS 181 Part 1-this is the sketch; FlourishesPermanent Link to Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC81)! - this one required lace and wee Memories Challenge #19 - Sponsored by May Arts- which required something sweet - I think I missed the time frame for one or two but will post it anyway LOL.

Sorry there are lots of pictures but I wasn't sure which to post and I wanted to show all the different parts of it - so here goes
