Sugar and Spice

Good morning everyone hope you are all ok and ready for a nice weekend.  Took all my decorations down yesterday and had a bit of a furniture move around, the house looks really bare now and always looks bigger without the tree! By the time I'd done all that and given the house a good clean up I was so tired that I couldn't post the card I had ready so I am doing that today.  It is a new baby card and naturally in pink!  I am in the middle of doing a blue one so I will hopefully post that tomorrow.

I wasn't 100% sure who the image was by I thought it was Meljen's Designs and when I went into my file to check I can't find the digi stamp!! Anyway I have checked on the website and it is a Meljen's Design I have no idea what has happened to it on my computer. I'm telling you me and this computer are going to have a serious falling out before too long (its just under the velux window in my craft room and I can see it being chucked out of there soon :-]).  Anyway I digress, I have coloured the image with my Copics and added lots of Stickles and some Liquid Pearls. I have matted it on a Nestie frame as well as the sentiment which was computer generated.  The heart and flourish are Marianne dies and the ribbon, twine and button are from my stash.  Not sure about the paper probably Pink Petticoat for the gingham and Nitwits for the stripey paper.  I will enter the following challenges:
