SWEETIE! Sugar Bowl 36 Challenge

I'm back. Did you all miss me? Huh? And have I got something SUPER SWEET to share with you all.
That little "Top Secret" something I was working on! I received an email a little while ago asking if I'd like to be a Sugar Bowl Sweetie. Huh? Would I? Let me just think it over for a nanosecond?
I nearly wet my pants, although I'm not sure whether that was with excitement or terror.When I started making cards one of the first places I visited was Sugar Nellie and I was always blown away by the talented ladies on the Sugar Nellie DT and the Sugar Bowl Sweeties. These girls are my heroines, boy I hope I don't let the side down! Also new to join the Sugar Bowl Sweeties is Sarah who I'm sure you will all know from her incredible work on the Sugar Nellie DT.
I'm thrilled to be working with such amazing talent. I'm honoured, I'm excited, I'm chuffed to bits and lastly I'm a wee bit terrified. So without further waffle:

The sketch for challenge 36 has been provided by Lilian and the option is pink, white and black. This is a great sketch and one I know I'll use again.
The fabulous prize for the lucky winner is 6 Sugar Nellie stamps, chosen by Sugar Nellie, so that'll be a sweet surprise for the winner, AND 6 Distress Inks.

List of goodies:
Image is a Leanne Ellis design called Bluebell available here, she's coloured with my usual DI's, the flowery pink and white paper is Jilli Bean Soup (egg drop soup - ground ginger) the dark pink paper with white spots is out of my scrap box.The flowers were made with a Nellie Snellen punch with another scrap of dotty black and white paper and a Do crafts punch for the tiny pink flower, held together with a pearl brad. A black button, a little black rub-on in the bottom corner and 3 black Kaiser pearls to finish.
Please head on over to the SUGAR BOWL and take a look at the stunning work from the other Sweeties, and please check the entry rules out too.

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