A Spoon Full Of Sugar...

...helps the medicine go down, medicine go down, medicine go down. I've been humming that all afternoon!
I made this card for my sil, who's birthday is tomorrow.
I thought I would also enter this card into this weeks challenge at A Spoonful Of Sugar. The lovely Jacqui set this challenge ( Jacqui has a fab tutorial on her blog for painting with Distress Inks) and the theme is Furry Friends.
The sketch I followed was by Claudia (Pretty Pressings).
List of goodies:
Image is a Puddle Jumpers stamp from Bunny Zoes, papers are Basic Grey Wisteria, MS border punch, flowers are Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls are from The Hobby House.
She's been coloured with DI's as always!
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
