Something Sweet

Made this card with an image my daughter had coloured and was going to bin! She wasn't happy but I thought it was great. The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and is called "Icing Sugar". I made it with the challenge Sweet Tooth over at in mind.
The colours of the image defined the backing papers I chose from my stash. I decided the flowers needed glittering up to match the "sweet" challenge so I used stickles on them. The sentiment is from an old magazine - I'm trying to be good and use up old things instead of reaching for the new all the time. I added a pink heart pin which I decorated with pink beads and a pale blue bow. I finished it off with a button with another pale blue bow. I hope you like the result made from "its rubbish" as Kathryn thought - hope she likes it now xx
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
