Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 82

A big thank you to everyone who left me a comment on my last post. Your input is very much appreciated and I shall take the advice of the majority. I will get some photos taken at the weekend :)

I am back with a card to share today! My mojo is still on vacation but I have missed the last 3 Sugar Bowl challenges and that simply won't do! We have another fab sketch, this time from Sweetie Maria with an optional theme of "Scrolls and Swirls".


This is an older Sugar Nellie stamp but I luv Luvvie! She's a real sweetie pie and one of my most inked stamps. As always, she's coloured with DI's, the gorgeous papers are Inkido from my favourite Dutch shop Crea Duymelot (thank you to Maria for getting me addicted to another range of papers!).
Embellishments...whoa! look at all them embellies! There's a swirl of pearls from The Hobby House, a Prima flower layered onto a lace flower (made by my own fair hands too!!) and held together with a Pearl Brad, a stamped and die-cut butterfly and finally - phew - a few more pearls.


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 is a fabulous gallery of cards from the other Sweeties over on the Sugar Bowl to give you a little inspiration :)
Thanks for looking.
Love

  10. Love the colours & of course those butterflies are just beautiful. Now this is a lovely example of embellishing - love all the sizes of pearls & my real favourite is that lace flower you made. I shall have to investigate the Hobby House stand when the Cardiff Show is on.
