Sprinkled With Sugar

Lili of The Valley's Challenge this week is 'Happy Birthday'.  I've been itching to try out my new Lili of The Valley Stamps, so here goes with a gorgeous stamp called 'Sprinkled With Sugar'.  It's a really cool design and I love these sweet little mice getting busy making a cake!

The paper was a freebie with Scrapbook Magazine and is part of stack called Serif 'Spring in Your Step' and they are really beautiful papers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and sentiment is from Lili of The Valley from their 'Dreamy Days Sentiments' set of 12. The bow, gems and charm are from stash.

Sprinkled with Sugar - LOTV Stamp

Colouring with Promarkers:-

Mice: Cool Grey 1 & Cool Grey 2
Icing Sugar Box and Brolly: Blossom and Rose Pink
Jam: Ruby & Magenta
Cake and Jam Label: Primrose
Jam and Jar: Glossy Accents
Icing Sugar: Ultra Fine Glitter: Pearl

I decorated the inside and used some of my Crafters Companions 'For Someone Special' Paper. The strawberry topper on left is from Nitwits Collections Strawberry Social.

Oh I love that card! The colours..! And the stamp!
It´s always nice to find a new blog that can give me some inspiration.

You are welcome to visit mine. Unfortunately it´s only written in swedish but I guess you can always "look att the pictures". :-))

Have a nice weekend!
