Sugar Bowl Challenge 44

I'm back with challenge 44 at the Sugar Bowl, and the sketch has been provided by the lovely Lilian. I always love Lilians sketches and the option for this challenge is to make a birthday card. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
We all need a constant supply of birthday cards so it's an excellent option.

Now I usually only post one photograph, but because it was supposed to be a birthday card, I thought I'd better show the inside too. Not a very good photograph but these easel cards are a devil to capture.

The image is "Little Miss Attitude" from the Gorjuss girl range, available to buy HERE, and she is my favourite stamp from this range. The sentiment is a Penny Black one that I've had for years.
The DP is one of my purchases from Harrogate , MME So Sophie from Jill at The Hobby House. A bit of lace, a Nellie Snellen punchy flower and a few pearls. Little Miss has been coloured with DI's as per usual.

The prize for this challenge is fabulous - as always - Nestabilities Labels 17 dies plus the 6 new Simply Sassy rubber stamps.
I am loving these new Simply Sassy stamps, they're an absolute dream to colour and I'm really having a fun time playing with them.
All the details for this challenge are on the Blog and please visit the other Sweeties for some inspiration.

On a personal note, we have internet again whoohoo!!
I feel like I've been missing for an eternity, I just need to answer all my emails then I'll be back to visiting all your lovely blogs.

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

  16. Glad your internet is sorted. Now you had me in stitches when I read the sentiment - perfect with that image. Love those striped socks & how they are mirrored in the striped paper panel (or was it the other way round?). The way you've coloured her hair & those little hair slides is so real too. Love the papers & the lace just adds such a lovely feminine less bossy touch.
