Super delish papers and image - what's not to love!

Hi there, how has your day been? I am much, much better and have been at university today filling the gap between my ears full of knowledge, lol. I made this card last night and couldn't wait to get home today to post it because I lurve it sooooo much (isn't it fab when you like something you make yourself??!!). Tracy from Dies To Die For sent me these gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Lush' papers in aqua and it was love at first sight ..... I need more of these and in all colours I think, love, love, love them!!

Materials

Well, how lovely is this sweet Belles and Whistle stamp, I adore all Elizabeth Bell's work and this is no exception, such a pleasure to colour. Of course I have mentioned these delish papers already so make sure you check them out before I buy them all!!! Think I have a new addiction coming on, oh dear!! The flowers are from my stash and I think the large one was from Poppicrafts which I bought many moons ago - I livened it up a bit by punching the petal edges with my beloved MS Doily Lace Punch ... nice little touch I thought. Craftworks sentiment again and my papermania mosaic gems (am I so predictable, lol). The sparkly icing on the cupcake is from my lovely Spica pen that Tracy sent me (remember to store these flat ... as I found out!).
Expect to see these papers later in the week .... told you I was addicted. Have a lovely evening xxx

Perfect yummyness all around! I can't say too many good words about your colouring - it looks so effortless and natural. Beyond fab!

I might (cough) have to steal your idea about using MS punch on flower petals sometime, I was wondering where you got that cool flower before I actually read the post! :D

I know all about drooling feelings towards MME papers, they are just so darn touchable and the colours and patterns are always delish!

Hope you're well!
