Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 55

Hey Hey! Thursday has come around again and it's a Sugar Bowl Thursday. The sketch for challenge 55 has been by provided by the very lovely Erika and it's a fab sketch which I thoroughly enjoyed following.
The option, should you wish to use it, is 'Spring'.
I do usually like to follow the option, but I was so desperate to use the scrummy new papers that I totally lost the plot and Spring disappeared out of the window! But I was a very good girl and as promised there has been no chopping body parts off the image this time.


This gorgeous little gal is called My Friend Kitty and is from the first set of Simply Sassy stamps, available to buy HERE. She's been coloured with DI's, the yummy scrummy papers are K and Company Julianne which I received in a surprise parcel of my good buddy Amanda and the colours and designs are simply gorgeous. *Thank you Amanda*  Just a few pearls for embellishment and that's it. I think if I was a painter I would be classed as a 'minimalist'. I do solemnly swear to try harder with the embellies and add a little bit more to my cards...couldn't really add any less!


Now the prize for the winner of this challenge is.....well, it's sort of a surprise, but a fabulous surprise.
It's something a little different that Karen found at the trade fair, and you all know Karen has exceptionally good taste, after all she did bring us all the wonderful Sugar Nellie stamps! So the winner will receive a goody box full of  fabby stuff to enable them to make 'something other than a card' with their rubber stamps.


All the details can be found on the Sugar Bowl blog along with the gorgeous cards and projects from the other sweeties.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

  6. Hi Elaine
    lovely card (as always), yes those papers are scrummy, colouring (as always) is fabio (that's a new word that my young granddaughter has taught her old nan) it means great/fabulous/good rotfl.
    Your spring could be the yellow round the die cut shape.I'm so pleased that no body part's have been chopped in the making of this card.

  27. Maybe I shouldn't send you any more goodies if I am making you non-compliant in your challenges! this is a lovely card and I am so stealing the 3 little pearls on either side of the image, that detail just really stands out for me. Lovely job even if I can see her knock knees. What is is with you UK people and your funny body parts!

  33. Really nice card. Love the colours and the papers are delish. Sweet colouring, and I love how you age the background of your stamped image. Do you use chalk, or another medium?
    Thank you for the inspiration,
