Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 61

I'm back with my card for the new Sugar Bowl challenge..gosh I think the weeks go by quickly, but it's been a year since my first Sugar Bowl card and I can't believe how quickly that went! They do say time flies when you're having fun, so I must be having a blast! (Or getting old?)
The sketch for this challenge has been done by Sweetie Kiki and the optional theme is Weddings/Love.
Since I am rather lacking in wedding images then I went with love instead.


Maybe I should've warned you first? Another card with no Sassy image on it! I thought I would practice what I preach and dig out a much older stamp for this challenge. This is Luvvie, a Leanne Ellis Annie image, I love this little cutie and it's one of my very well used stamps.
As usual, she's been coloured with DI's and Nick Bantock inks, the papers are MME Stella & Rose (Hattie) which I've been stroking since March so I thought it was about time I actually used them.
The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps, the flowers are a MFT die which I've had for absolutely yonks but never used yet I keep admiring them on Fi's blog, a few pearls and the jobs done.


The fabulous prize for one lucky winner is a set of 6 pick'n'mix Sugar Nellie stamps. As always, you can find all the details over on the Sugar Bowl blog along with lots of lovely inspiration from all the other sweeties.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

  1. oh Elaine just my kind of card...love those papers and flowers and once agioan stunning colouring.
    I have been a bit quiet this week, but just having a wee quick look on your blog before I head off to the hospital. Holly has been in since Monday but hopefully she is getting home today.

  16. Love the way those die-cut flowers pick up the shape of the ones in the pattern of the paper. I always like these Leanne Ellis images - there's just something about their whimsical brightness. The colours are really striking with the greyish blue & chrome yellow. Love the way that triad of pearls on the circle echo the ones opposite on the flowers (top left) - if that makes sense.
