Hello crafters, it's a lovely sunny day outside today, and I am feeling quite cheery today, so I will start off the day with a couple of posts. My first post for today is for a NEW Challenge Blog called The Sugar Bowl. This is a Challenge Blog for all those Sugar Nellie fans out there, so hurry over and check it out. So this card is for Challenge No. 1 - Sketch by Tiets, and for this I have chosen one of my absolute favourite Sugar Nellie stamps "Pen Pal", which has been coloured with a combination of Art-Kure WC brushes, and Sukura Gel Pens. The image has been cut to size, and layered on pearlescent pink cardstock. The backing papers are all scraps from other projects, but I think most of the were printed from Funky Hand CD's. The card has been finished off with a sentiment from Lili of the Valley. Hope you have enjoyed your visit, and thanks for stopping by.
