The Sugar Bowl Challenge Card - #1



Well I have had a lovely relaxing day today, I have been lazing around and late this afternoon decided to make a card for this new challenge blog called The Sugar Bowl. There is a sketch to follow which is always good. The Sugar Bowl is dedicated to Sugar Nellie stamps so luckily I have some of these and was eager to enter using one of my Sugar Nellie stamps that I have never used before. I nearly forgot to mention that the winner of this challenge wins three packets, yes three packets of Promarkers, my favourites, how exciting.

The papers I used for this card are Basic Grey - Mellow.
The image is by Leanne Ellis Designs and is called "Choose".
Image coloured with Promarkers.
I have added Glossy Accents to the hearts and flowers.
Prima Flowers with a Papermania brad in the centre.
Buttons from stash.
Sentiment computer generated.

The papers are quite bold I think, not what I would normally choose, I tend to go for pastels and especially anything pink so this is a step away from my comfort zone.

Anyway I am off to my bed now, I want to go shopping at a local craft shop tomorrow morning called Scrap Revolution. Can you believe that it is in the town where I live but I didn't know anything about it. It is fairly well hidden but I only found out about it after chancing upon the website and then realising it is about 5/10 minutes from where I live. It's my birthday on Wednesday so maybe I will treat myself to something nice.

I hope you like the card. All comments are very welcome.
