my internet fairy has returned - Sugar Nellie round two card

Good morning everyone, first of all a huge apology for no blogging last night but my internet fairy went on a little trip and I had to change over wires, routers and bits and pieces before she would come back...I prefer to think of my internet as a fairy because if I think about it mechanically or as a little IT person sitting in an office I get hopping mad and the mist forms...anyway shes back now so normal service is resumed....I sat and thought and thought about what I would make for round 2 of the Sugar Nellie competition, then I was talking to my husband on the phone and he said and I quote 'just get on with it and make a card' so thats exactly what I did...I used this fabulous Simply Sassy Pillow talk I bought from Funky Kits, don't you just love that chilled out attitude, coloured her with Distress inks (yes I used the dreaded red ink again) and teamed her with with another of these amazing My Minds Eye Lush papers, this one is called Daisy Paper (flocked), I wish you could feel it as it really is like velvet, I cut and raised some of the flowers and added a cream satin ribbon and bow and a 'gorgeous' zipper tag...I'm not sure it works as she look like shes floating instead of sitting on the flowers like shes meant to be...what do you thing does it work okay...I have all my bits crossed and hopefully can still manage to shop for the gubbins of some chicken soup for my Daughter (shes not sick just loves it) with them crossed...have a wonderfully warm day everyone

Love your card - she is gorgeously colored & yes, she does look sassy! And um, I think I need a translator for some of your comments "I have all my bits crossed and hopefully can still manage to shop for the gubbins of some chicken soup..." bits crossed? gubbins? You crack me up!
