Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 56

Hey Hey! It's a Sugar Bowl day! The sketch for this challenge has been provided by Sweetie Kiki and it's another fabulous sketch. The option if you choose to follow it is 'PINK'. Now who doesn't love a bit of pink?
I just love this colour but I have very little in the way of pink papers, so if anyone knows where I can buy some scrummy pink DP then please let me know. I was a good girl again - 3rd time in a row here - with no chopping or hacking off bits of the image. This little lady is so sweet and needs to be displayed in all her glory!


This adorable girl is called 'Little light of mine' and available to purchase HERE, she been coloured with a mixture this time, the usual DI's and some Nick Bantock inks which I received in a parcel off a dear friend of mine. They are fabulous as they work in the same way as DI's but give me some different colours. *Thank you hunny* The papers are Memory Box Gossamer, the sentiment is a Pink Petticoat, a string of pearls and some punched flowers. I must admit those flowers caused me some trouble, only because I would've preferred to stop 4 flowers earlier, you know me and my simple cards!


As you can see I rotated the sketch to accommodate my chosen image.
So now you want to know what the prize is for the lucky winner of this challenge? Since the theme is 'PINK' then the prize is a goodie box filled with pink themed card making goodies.....I really wish I could enter this one!

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

  26. Love the colours & the vibrancy with which you've coloured her - the Nick Bantock are great fun but hadn't thought to use them with Distress Inks - I've used them for the Bleeding Inkpads technique & they're great for that so of course ....... thanks for making me think & wake up.
