A card and a wonderful surprise

Happy friday my wonderful blogging friends! Today I have made a card using one of those super sassy girls from sugar nellie, I just love this hippy chick and really felt the need to colour her again having recently seen her on my blog hopping travels and as the sketch over at the deconstructed sketch was definately my type I just had to!

I have used the yumminess of black market paper society papers again. I'm hoping they will be in stock again soon at Craftie Charlie! I have also used this stunning butterfly from Prima, a sentiment from SU with flowers from wild orchids.

I have coloured my image with prismas, inked the edges with worn lipstick and vintage photo ink and stamped a Stempelglede swirl stamp around the edge. All papers have been machine stitched.

I would also like to enter this into Lexis creations Autumn (my colours are Autumnal), The crazy challenge birthdays, Flutterby wednesday open, My mums craft shop happy birthday, Rubys rainbow one for the girls, Delightful girlie girl, Crafty purple frog fall, Digi doodle shops best Autumn colours, Allsorts flowers and swirls and Crafty pad autumnal colours.
Now on to my surprise, well the reason I didn't tell you where my superb pink pearl flourish and pretty gem and butterfly pin came from is that I had a wonderful parcel this morning from my sweet and kind friend Bonnie and they were a few of the many things inside! Bless darling Bonnie for sending me a fabulous box of goodies for my birthday and the most amazing card ever!
I'm slightly ashamed to post a photo of this alongside my own card as it is truly a work of art! From one massive Twilight fan to another what more could one want than this.....

Well I was stunned and my daughters were incredibly awed I struggled to get them out the house for school! This is a card to my heart and so completely beautiful it is! Inside the pocket Bonnie has put some totally droolable photos of RP, may be looking at this all night lol!
Thanks to you all for coming by my blog again today and massive hugs to all of you

OMG Rebekah I am a big fan of Bonnie's she is one awesome crafter her work always leaves me breathless, what fantastic photo's, the flowers and detail are wondrous. A belated Happy Birthday. I watched Twilight for about the 100th time last night, tonight I will watch New Moon for about the 80th time, lol. I am getting side tracked now so I must tell you that your card is absolutely beautiful it is creations like this that inspire me so much, the design, image and attention to detail is amazing.

Love it! It is just gorgeous, the colour combo is brilliant and that paper - WOW. If only I hadn't just treated myself to the new flexmarkers I'd be stalking the craft shop!!! Thanks for the comment on my blog, your very kind comments are always appreciated. Sarah P.S. I know about Kristas new digis, but am trying so hard to resist - I know I won't be good for long though and there is a new Sassy launch tomorrow as well. No wonder hubby is rolling his eyes and hiding the credit card!!!

I came over here to finally come and leave you a comment as I have been so behind here lately and then I noticed you used our Deconstructed Sketch for your card. I love this stamp and I am so excited she now has some of her images as digi's as it just cost too much to order and her them shipped here to the USA.
I love all the embellishments you used. I love the girls room so I will have to come back later and comment on them. Oh and thanks for joining us this week at The Deconstructed Sketch. Jenn does make some awesome sketches and I love seeing everyone's different takes on them. Thank you for all your sweet comments.
