THE SUGAR BOWL CHALLENGE NO. 14



Hi everyone, hope you are all well this Wednesday. Just think... one the downhill run to the weekend! I have a very quick post today, as I am totally swamped at work, this time of year everyone is going on Holiday, and the workload gets heavier. This card is for The Sugar Bowl Challenge No. 14 - a wonderful Sketch from Judy, and the option of having some "Sparkle" - using Bling, Shimmerz, Stickles, Glitter, Glimmer Mist etc. I have gone into my craft box, and pulled out one of the oldies from Sugar Nellie called Letter Box, and this adorable image has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens, and a few touches with my Art-Kure WC Brushes. I have used some glitter on the spots of the hat, ribbon and belt, using a Quickie Glue pen, and Crystal Glitter. The image has been cut to size, and layered on red and brown card. The backing papers are all from a Basic Grey paper pad called Infuse. The card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment, paper flower with gem brad, a strip of brown ribbon and some red gems, all from my craft stash. Many thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a lovely day!

Hi Louise! Sorry to hear about the workload, but it's better to be working before the holidays rather than getting back to work with a table load of stuff lol!

Your card is just beautiful! You've used a really sweet image. Lovely shades of red and your papers are gorgeous! Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl challenge and hope to see you in the next one too! Have a great day!
