Simon Says - A Spoonful of Sugar

This is for the challenge over at Simon Says which is for a tent card and charms. Really enjoyed this so thanks  Dena,  who set this week's challenge. I think this also fits the Spoonful of Sugar challenge this week of 'Cute and Girly' - I think she's girly and she's certainly cute.

Another Hanglar, this time a little girl - you're going to get fed up of these soon, promise I'll do something different tomorrow. This one is coloured with Copics, cut out and 'sat' on the side of the aperture which is cut with Spellbinder label 4 - (I think!!) I attached the cut out portion to the inside of the card. The corners are stamped with a stamp from Prima Build a Frame using Victorian velvet distress ink. The swirls are cut with a Marianne die and the heart button I made using several layers of cards, inked it, then covered with glossy accents. I made the braid (will finish my tutorial soon - promise!!!) coloured it with Copics and threaded it through the heart button and tied it into a bow. Below is a close up of the charms and 'button'.

Well it's an early night for me tonight. My 'darling' cat decided it was playtime in the middle of last night. He was leaping over the bed, under the bed, back over and sounded like a herd of elephants. Next was the wall of death around the room, leaping from bedside cabinet to chest of drawers and every piece of furniture in the room.  For his grand finale he decided to climb and swing from the curtains. Hence a sleepless night and I can honestly say if he does that again in the middle of the night it won't be the curtains he's swinging from!

Hi Heather,
Stunning card, I love the colours.
Your cat is so funny lol! One of mine has worked out that if you swing on the pull cord in my bedroom the light comes on, I don't find it so amusing though.
