Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 100

Today we have a new challenge over on the Sugar Bowl.
Challenge No 100? How can that be?
That came around far too quickly...I'm obviously having way too much fun :)

I love fairies and I have a big soft spot for chubby fairies
I used the image Lil' Sweetpea and coloured her with DI re-inkers and markers, but mainly the DI markers on this one. I even cut *shock* one of my favourite papers for this card, Pion  - Fairytale of Spring - and my last sheet too....I must remember to order some more!

The sentiment is from PTI, a die cut butterfly (MFT and Cheery Lynn) and the odd pearl.
You know by now I like to keep my cards simple...I could tell you it's because I want the image to shine (which of course I do) but it's also because I'm beyond hopeless at adding embellies.

Again we have the theme of 'Anything Goes' rather than a sketch challenge, so...anything goes, you have the freedom to create whatever your heart desires, but you must use a Sugar Nellie image to enter and be eligible to win the prize.

As this is our 100th challenge there will be TWO winners chosen at random, both will win their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps...double the chance to win so get your entries in!

Challenges to enter:
Die-ing For A Challenge...I've used MFT Butterfly die (under the Cheery Lynn die) and Pion Paper.
Thanks for looking.


  1. Beautiful card Elaine. Love this image and your stunning colouring. Gorgeous papers and a fab layout.

  2. Lovet eh combination of the white butterfly with those little bright red ladybirds - the way those leaves are echoed in your patterned paper is rather special too.

  4. Hi Elaine

  22. Hi Elaine,isn't she just adorable? it's your colouring that makes her so sweet. I think I'd be dissapointed if you piled on loads of embellishment, I do prefer to see the whole stamp, not doilies flowers and leaves. No offence to all the beautiful cards we do see on other blogs, I love to look at them all. The wee ladybirds are so cute, I don't think I saw one of them last summer. Have a good weekend, kind regards to all...Trish

  23. Elaine, Amanda gave me a link to your Blog and I am so glad she did, your creations are GORGEOUS. I'll be stopping by again :) x

  24. Just beautiful Elaine and the chubby little fairy is adorable and is one I will have to add to my 'MUST HAVE' list. Your colouring is as always amazing, just love looking at your cards. Take care, Ann-Marie xxx

  25. What a Super image, she is totally adorable and your colouring is amazing gal.
