All Snuggled Up

How sweet is this stamp?  I went to a Crafter's Companion demo at Howden's, my local craft shop yesterday and they had the Strawberry Kisses stamps on special offer of three for a tenner for the day so I just had to get them.  It would have rude not to!  If you ever get a chance to go to one of Claire from Crafter's Companion's demos you really should, she was brilliant.  She demo'd Speccies, the E Craft and the Ultimate Pro.  You can find her fab blog here.  She's a whizz with the E Craft, you won't believe the stuff she's made with it.
My friend, Alison popped over for a cuppa last night and we ended up having an impromptu crafting session with this cute stamp!
I coloured the image with Promarkers and paper pieced the cushion in the basket.
The papers are Papermania, most from the Tulip range and the larger spotty one from the Hot Diggedy Dog range.  Both are lovely. soft pastel colours and much nicer once opened than the packaging suggests.
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and I've added a hint of sparkle to it with some Diamond Stickles.
The lace border punch is my much used and favourite Martha Stewart punch (again!).
The flowers were made with my Nellie Snellen punches (again!)
I've finished off with a ribbon, bow and some Card Candi.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Kimbee's Creations - sketch
Penny Black and More - oh so cute
The Poodle's Parlour - spots and dots
