Sugar Nellie - Trip To The Park

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Good morning, it's Thursday so it's Sugar Nellie time for me and without further ado here's this week's card.  the stamp is called 'Trip To the Park' and is still available from Funkykits -  in both rubber and digital format. It's due to be retired soon so get it while you can.

Here's What I Did
After being inspired by a card I spotted on Pinterest I decided to do something similar.  I created the card base myself because I wanted a top fold and in the colour of my choice. The zig zag pattern and the text on the white card stock, was drawn and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo, but I know that there are dies and border punches that can create a similar effect. The white zig zag card was raised up on foam tape and placed over patterned paper. The cute girl and her dogs was coloured using Copics/Promarkers/flexmarkers, fussy cut out and raised up on foam tape,  To finish off I added tiny flowers, gems and glitter.
