Dreamy Sugar Nellie

I'm back in my cute zone for this one & I love it when a card turns out just as I planned. I only had one go at this, as lovely Dena sent me the image. No pressure then!! But the Sugar Nellie Mangas are one of my favourite stamp ranges. Though I do struggle with their hair!!

I'm entering this in two challenges. The layout is based on this weeks sketch at Papertake Weekly. Really enjoyed the sketch & will definitely use it again. The colour scheme fits the bill at Colour Create too, where they want you to use red, black & off white. Love that combo!

I actually added glaze to give her lovely shiny shoes, but you can't tell in the photo. The DPs are from the Bella Bella range from MME, & the deep red paper is Bazzill Bling (yum!) She's coloured with Promarkers. Don't ask me about the lace paper. I found it in the bottom of my ribbon box & have had it for ages. It's from Hobbycraft I think.
Got to go. My bed is calling!
Thanks for looking!!
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
