Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 69

Today sees a new challenge over on the Sugar Bowl. It's another fun and fab sketch from (sharp intake of breath) our very own Sugar Mama Gayle.

This gorgeous image I Grant You One Wish is from the Jingle Bells and Tinkle Bells range of stamps and has been coloured with a mixture of DI's and SU inks. The DP - which has nothing at all to do with Christmas - is MME Believe matted onto Kraft card stock. MS punches for the two snowflakes, PTI sentiment, glamour dust for the sparkly bits and a few of my compulsory pearls.

I really enjoyed following this sketch.

And photographic inspiration for the theme. For heavens sake..a gingham kitchen ceiling? Who would actually go as far as to have a gingham ceiling hmmm??

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 can also see all the fabulous cards from the other Sweeties for your inspiration.

Don't forget that there are still sneak peaks all this week on the Sugar Nellie blog. 

These gorgeous stamps, 11 in total, will be available to buy from Funky Kits this coming Saturday!
Ho hum....I shall be forced to buy them all. After all, a girl can't be too rich or have too much rubber :)

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

  18. Elaine,
    Your coloring is beautiful! I love the colors in this...I think the gingham ceiling is wonderful...LOL! Love your card!

  19. Hi Elaine
    my dear Mum used to say blue & green should never be seen, BUT she was wrong (bless her) because your card is FAB-U-LUS, that image is so sweet, and your colouring (as always) is T.D.F. Now i know I'm a bit weird (well a lot actually) lol, BUT I love the gingham ceiling, of course it goes without saying you would need a kitchen the size of a small house to take it.

  23. Oooh beautiful card Elaine... very much in keeping with the photo inspiration... and I agree about the gingham ceiling - but...... it does look quite good in a quirky sort of way!

  25. Hey there you little sugar muffin!! I love this card, darlin'! Your coloring is stunning! I need to ink up this little darlin' now...she's perfect for a Christmas card!! Hugs. Pat Frank

  26. Goodness me Elaine - your colouring has just taken my breath away & you pearls just accent it all beautifully. That gingham ceiling is brilliantly reflected in you ginham layer but it is the shading of that little bunny & the character you painted into her that is so striking.

  27. Hey Elaine; this card is so pretty! I am loving all that sparkle on the dazzling!
