Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 78

Good Morning!

I'm back with a card for the new Sugar Bowl challenge. We have another fabulous sketch from Sweetie Maria Therese with the optional theme of 'Kraft'. I love kraft and use it often so this was an easy one for me! 

This poor little fairy has only ever been inked up once and she was crying out for some love...


(sorry the photo is a bit dark)
This is Charlotte from the Fairy Glen range of stamps and as usual, she's been coloured with DI's. The pretty papers are from a Tilda pad, a Cheery Lynn die cut leaf flourish, a punched flower and a sprinkling of pearls completes the card.


The prize for one lucky winner chosen at random is their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries.
As always, there are a fabulous array of cards made by the Sweeties over on the Sugar Bowl to give you a little inspiration.
Thanks for looking.
Love

  8. Love your colouring of her striped top to match the papers & the way you used that little flower to mimic both the flower of the image & the patterend paper panel. Hope everything fine with you & yours.
