Sugar Bowl for my sister!

Just a quickie to share the card I made for my sister's birthday later this week. I wanted to make a card that reflects how beautiful she really is. I think this Leann Ellis image from sugar Nellie fits the bill.


I stamped the image twice. I coloured one with Distress Inks, & cut round the main figure. The other I coloured the background, again with DIs, & sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Angel Mist. I pieced the main image on the background & added glitter for extra sparkle. I added more Cosmic Shimmer to the flower I created with Grungepaper, cut from Paper Artsy dies. The paper are SEI & are foiled. They are my faves, nothing but the best for my sister.

I used the fabulous sketch at the current Sugar Bowl Challenge. I'm also entering this at Papertake Weekly where the theme is 'Cut it Out'. My die cut flowers fit the bill there.

So is it cold enough for you? It's Baltic here, but no snow! I love the snow for the reaction of the children. However, it soon became a pain last year, so my symathies go out to those who have it bad. Snuggle up & keep warm!

Thnaks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
