Sugar Bowl Challenge - Sugar Nellie Anything GoesIt's been an overcast Sunday here but still nice and warm. Been a busy one so didn't get around to making a card until late, and I expect it'll be after midnight when I publish this post so will show it to be Monday.
For this card, I wanted to use a colour I don't go for very often - pink! Why? Well, firstly because I have some gorgeous paper I wanted to use, which has pink in it, and also there's a challenge I wanted to enter that was entitled 'Pink and Girlie'. Being neither pink nor particularly girlie, I scratched my head. I have some adorable stamps I recently purchased secondhand I was keen to use, by Sugar Nellie - and intrigued, I looked on the good old net to see what I could find, and came across yet another blog challenge, yaaay! Not that I'm addicted or anything. Shhhh don't tell anyone, but I decided to enter that one too hehehe, so with two requirements in mind - pink and girlie AND it had to be a Sugar Nellie stamp, I came up with the following. Bear in mind it's not my usual style please, but overall I think it's cute. There are a few things I'd change next time, but that's the joy of crafting - enjoyment and learning.
I used a pink card stock base, some gorgeous paper from Jenny Ellory called Parisian Dreams, and the pretty stamp 'Flower Girl' by Sugar Nellie - I believe it's a few years old now but it's new to me and I LOVE it. I embellished with coordinating pink and green flatback pearls, a doillie, pink ribbon and a lovely sentiment that's one of my favourites right now - I decided to stamp it on the same coloured paper and attach with 3d foam pads to add a little dimension.
