Sugar Bowl - Challenge 14, Judy's Sketch

Not too last minute with my Sugar Bowl entry for a change! I love the whistful expression on this Curtsy image. She reminds me of my ballet lessons as a child. I was always tall for my age & not the most graceful of children. At the end of each lesson we had to curtsy for the teacher. I gave up ballet shortly after she told me I had the arms, but not the feet for ballet. Sad isn't how things stay with you & scar you for life! I have always seen myself as a bit awkward & clumsy. But that might just be because I trip up & bang into things a lot! I am never without a good bruise or two, but can never remember getting them. I must be immune to the pain, LOL!
Back to the card, the DPs are Wild Asparagus by MME (love these!). Had loads of fun with this sketch & will definitely use it again. I had to move the position of the bling in the top right hand corner as I did not leave enough space for it down the side, duh!
By the way, have you seen the new Manga images on the Sugar Nellie blog. Gotta get me some of those! Hope you all had a good weekend.

Wow Andie! Your card is just gorgeous! Great image, great coloring and love the details! The swirls behind the flower and the jewel brads. Wonderful card!
Ballet... something I always wanted to do since I was a kid but was too clumsy and chubby for it lol! At least you tried! Don't let it get to you - you're better at doing something else.
Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl challenge and hope to see you in the next one too! Have a great day!
