Sweet Stampin - Photo Inspiration

Wow!...We had a record-breaking amount of entries last week on Sweet Stampin with heaps of really brilliant entries! :)  This week we have a photo-inspiration theme, and a really stunning prize of 2 Sugar Nellie Stamps!

This is the inspiration piccie:

Now the colours on my card match the picture a little better IRL, but the light in my window disagreed! LOL

I used a gorgeous Crafts and Me image, and hand-stitched  and distressed paper from a Crafty Individuals seaside pad.  The carnations are WOC and I threaded wooden beads on the flower-stem twiddly bits.  The dies are a mix of Spellbinder and Marianne.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Crafts and Me - Inspired by a song - Wishful Thinking, China Crisis.
CES Challenges - Inspired by song - Wishful Thinking, China Crisis
Ooh La La Creations - Stitching
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Stitch it
Creatalicious Challenges - Distress Edges
Pink Ink Sketches - Great Sketch ladies :)
Marianne Design Divas - Dying to die cut

Thanks so much for looking, and have a smashing weekend, and I hope you find time to check out all the other fabulous DT creations too.

Love the way your ruffly flowers reflect the one in the photo & also pick up all the crinkles (wavy elements - hair, her wings, the pillar whe is leaning on etc....). Her blue eyes accent that background paper beautifully too.
