Simply Sassy Saturday!

I hope you've all managed to watch the Royal Wedding by now. I was glued to the telly from 10am and although it was a Royal wedding and a fair bit of pomp and circumstance goes with the territory, what actually struck me most about the whole thing was how happy and in love Wills and Kate seem to be - just like any other young couple on their wedding day. It really was a beautiful, special occasion for the Royals and for Britain as a country. In the afternoon, we went round to my cousin's for a barbecue, which was lovely...lots of fab food and great company. The 'boys' even recreated the wedding in lego, which kept them entertained for a couple of hours (and when I say boys, their ages range from Sam, who's 10 to my cousin, who's 24!!!)
Now....given my love of the Simply Sassy range, I've decided to try and share with you a Simply Sassy card every Saturday.....and here's the first one:

This is quite possible my favourite Simply Sassy (but then I say that about all of them LOL!!!). I've watercoloured her with distress inks and cut around her leaving a slight white outline, which is something that I've never done before but think it looks quite effective, 'specially against the black background. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and I thought it went pretty well with the image! I've added the images to a mat that I've cut out using my swirling lace Martha Stewart PATP and then stuck it to a base card covered with some MAMBI leopard print paper. I do love a bit of leopard print, I always say that I'm turning into Bet Lynch in my old age, hee, hee!!! The button is from Tim Holtz and I've stitched it to a big tulle bow. The tulle was once white but I coloured it with a black promarker. I also sprayed it with some Ranger perfect pearl mist, so IRL, it's quite sparkly but you can't see that in the pics.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
OK - I think that's it! If there are any that have a maximum entry requirement, then I'm sorry, please just delete my entry! Hope you like it everyone. I'd really love to hear what you think and I always really appreciate any comments you leave me. Right, we're off for a late trip to the toy shop and Iceland for some magnums!!! See you again soon...........xx
