Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 95.

I'm back with a card for the new Sugar Bowl challenge, and this time we have a fabby sketch from the lovely  and multi-talented Sweetie Erika.

I have used another of my favourite Leanne Ellis stamps, Cup Of tea.
As always, she's coloured with DI re-inkers and markers. 
The papers are MME Stella and Rose - Hattie.
The flutterby's are MFT dies, the flowers are made from PTI dies, felt and buttons, and the sentiment is from WMS.

And this time the optional theme is a colour inspired one.

As always, there is a prize chosen at random for one lucky winner, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries.
Please pop on over to the Sugar Bowl to see the beautiful cards off my Sweetie sisters.

Thanks for looking.

  6. Your colouring of that teapot & the teacup are delightful - these colours are just made for each other & it's all beautifully thrown into relief by your use of the white. Lovely texture with the felt too.
