Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 65

Yes! Yes! Yes! The Sweeties are all back from their Summer holidays and ready for a new challenge.
Sadly, my Summer break didn't take me very far, just to work and back home again repeatedly! But I am very happy to be back here today for the new Sugar Bowl challenge.The sketch this time has been set by the lovely Sweetie Maria Therese with the optional theme of the colour BLUE.


This gorgeous Christmas image is called Furry Friends and has been coloured with DI's and Nick Bantock inks, slathered with lots of Glamour Dust. The DP is Echo Park Winter Wonderland (from last year). A couple of flowers, pearls and some swarovski crystals for embellies. Pretty simples as usual.

The prize for one lucky winner is a choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, but if there are 100+ entries then the prize will increase to any 6 Sugar Nellie stamps. 
For all the details on how to enter please visit the Sugar Bowl blog, where you will also find lots of lovely cards for inspiration from the other sweeties.


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

  33. Love the crystal embellishing & that flower is a beauty with the way the inner one picks up on the shape of the snowflakes. Lovely touch with the deep brown of the snow border. Just soft & icy if that's not a contradiction.
