Mint Leaves - one of my favourites!

I love these so cannot buy them because I will eat a whole packet in one sitting! They are sweet and sticky and minty and small, so you deceive yourself that it is only just a little temptation!  Love them with coffee.

This fortnight the Lollipop Ladies have an new challenge for you - Challenge #55!

This fortnight with the Aussie Spring we thought it might be time for some leaves and in particular green ones with that fresh minty flavour... yes, this fortnight it's Mint Leaves!

With the additional challenge of Glitter.

Guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
and our sponsor this fortnight is: Annabelle Stamps *

$10 Voucher (thanks to Andrea).
Please link up your entries in the sidebar :-)
Prize will only be offered if 7 or more entries partake in the challenge.

My card is using an image by Margaret Sherry that I mentioned in this post, coloured by Copics. This one is of a dog - the soppy look on his face is so cute (yes, he is male, no female would do this!).  I have got sparkle on it s well - I used my Atya Spika pen on the flowers, heart, butterflies and his collar but it does not show up that clearly in this first photo so I had to go for another one to get the shine going!

Green background, and ribbon for the green in the leaves; mint = fresh = spring = butterflies and new flowers and an urge for love...........worked for me! The scroll is from Verve (stamp and diecut) and the sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps - Shape it Up. The card is SU Poppy Parade and Old Olive, and the DP is from My Minds Eye (I think). The ribbon was wrapped around a present received at ones stage. The stripped paper is from Basic Grey - Oxford. 

You can just see the sparkle and the ribbon is sparkly too. 

I will enter this in the Anything Goes sketch Challenge and the Shopping Our Stash Challenge #70: fur or feathers - dogs have got fur too!
