Super Sweet Penny

How's the snow in your part of the country? In London, it hasn't stopped today since about 8am and looks set to continue. I love it when it's thick on the ground and the view from my window overlooking Blackheath, looks so very pretty.
So - it's Sunday, which means there's a new sketch over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and this week, it's a good 'un from Claire! Here's my card:
Image - Saturated Canary coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs.
Papers, Ribbon, Button, Gems/Pearls - Dovecraft 'Garden Party'.
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Other - Scalloped Card Blank - Craftwork Cards, MS Butterfly Punch.

I'm going through a bit of a Saturated Canary phase at the moment - I've always loved Krista's images right from when the Simply Sassy's were released and I own pretty much every image that's ever been released but I've not made up any cards with them for ages but the last three cards I've made have been SC - so keep an eye out for the others! I've also used another of my current faves on this card - Cosmos Daisies from WOC! They're so pretty! And I used some of my Christmas and Birthday money to have a bit of a splurge at Wild Orchid, so have lots of lovely new blooms!!
I'm also going to enter my card into the following challenges:
I think that's about it. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think and don't forget to hop over to Sunday Sketch and Stamp to check out my teamies cards and join in! Stay safe and warm........xx
