I'm so excited. Kristina came over to play yesterday and I received my latest SU order. So much to play with - I didn't know where to start! Managed to re-ink my spots; thanks Kristina! I also managed one card in between caring for baby. Baby has his first cold and is learning how to breathe, cough and eat while being blocked up. It hurts to watch.

One of my new toys are the SU markers so I broke these out first. I loved how quick and easy it was to colour my stamps. I used to do this with my spots but this is so much quicker and more accurate.

I sponged some creamy caramel over top but didn't sponge off, forgetting I'd reinked it so the colour is a little darker than I was expecting. The image is Of This Earth and is also a new toy. The sentiment is from Take Three. I get so much more use out of this set now that I've split the sentiment and the images.

The card was inspired by this week's Paper Sundae challenge which is a pretty photo inspiration. I loved the colours in it which I kept. I also kept the floral theme.

Challenges this card meets:
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Saturday Challenge - Pink, Green and Flowers
