Sugar bowl: 'for someone sweet'

I've finally managed to do a card for the sugarbowl - yeah! It's only taken me nearly 2 months but I got there! This was a tough one for me too - 1 piece of designer paper only, eek! Got there in the end with the help of some embossing folders and punches to the rescue. Stash:
  • Images: 'Chick-a-dee' Sugar Nellie stamp. Just adore this one - her big eyes reminds me of the precious moments images. circular sentiment stamp came free with her and her friend.
  • Colouring: Copics and some Sakura stardust pens over the flowers and her bows and apron
  • Paper: scrap piece on my desk (BG Euphoria I think) matted onto embossed piece of lilac cardstock
  • Others: have embossed the edges of the white cardblank with cuttlebug embossing strip and then swiped ink over it. Flowers made with EK retro flower punches and scrap card (stamped sentiment randomly over white card before punching flowers out). The centre of the large flower has a button I made with shrink plastic using the circular sentiment stamp - see below for close up of it. Leaves are also punches.

That's all for tonight, have a good evening!
