This is my second post of the day...  I am having a lovely relaxing day making cards.  Not so productive though as I my mojo doesn't appear to be working very well.

Anyway, here's a card I made for the current Tiddly Inks challenge which is Sugar and Spice with a Twist  - to make a sarcastic or humorous card.

I used the current sketch from Truly Scrumptious:

The image is Always the Flower Girl from the Tiddly Inks Gothic Cute collection.  And I had the hardest time choosing papers.  In the end I settled with the main paper from Cosmo Cricket and the other papers from Echo Park and My Mind's Eye, but I'm still not happy with them.   The image is coloured with copics (see details below).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Challenge #55: Sugar and Spice with a Twist
Truly Scrumptious Challenge #59: Sketch

Here is a close up of Always the Flower Girl:

And here are the copics I used:

Happy Sunday!
