Candy Card

Nothing much to do at work today so decided it was about time I used up some of the fabulous candy I got from Laurie ages ago (which consisted of the paper pad, distress ink, ribbon and flowers I've used on this card) - Thanks again Laurie!.  I'm pleased with the way it all came together and am going to keep it for my best friends birthday next month.  It's really strange as we haven't spoken since Christmas (she's in Scotland, I'm in Hull) but I was making this card today thinking of giving it to her.....and she sent a text!  Now that's spooky  lol.
Recipe for this card :

Papers - My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2 Breeze (all edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy)
Leaves - Spellbinders Foliage Die using card from Stash
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Gems - Kaiser scrapbook Rhinestones Island Lagoon (template Bazzil Basic Jewel Template)
Sentiment - Freebie from Internet (sorry had it so long can't remember where from)
Ribbon - from Stash

I'm entering this card into the following challenges

Happy New year

Hello Everypeeps and Happy New Year to you all! Hope you all made very Merry over the festives. Been back at work for a week now....and I'm ready for another holiday. Had a few cards to make this week, two for a 40th for a lad at work and some other bits and pieces so can safely say I'm into the swing of that again too! Might even get round to sorting out a challenge card or two this week if things quieten down! lol.
Can't really give recipes for these cards as the bits are from everywhere!! Included in that are my old faithful cd's. Some backing papers from PM ranges. Shapes cut with Nesties in Big Shot and also some Martha Stewart PATP punches. Also used a couple of the toppers from the Me To You Mix and Match Range. They are £1 each at the Range but they have them on 3 for 2 at the moment!.
