Sugar Nellie

Hi All.
I hope your weekend went well.  The weather didn't really improve did it.

When I started the year I made a resolution to use images and make cards "just because" and not for any DT work (which, don't get me wrong I do still enjoy!)  The year started off well but somehow has slipped again so I am trying to make more of an effort again now!  One of those that I wanted to use more of and enter more of their challenges was at the Sugar Bowl using Sugar Nellie images. So I coloured up an image over the weekend for this week's sketch challenge.  Here is my card:

This gorgeous little thing is called Charlotte and you can get her at Funky Kits here.  She is absolutely shimmering in glitter but you can't see it from the photos!  I had a lot of trouble finding some paper that was Violet or had shades of this colour, which is odd as it is one of my favourite colours!  I've used some more of my Mulberry Flowers again, from the Hobby House here.  I know I am late to the party with these but I am loving using them!  

I gave the corners some detail with my corner punch, which I don't think I like really but it was too late to change it!  I also used my butterfly punches which I am also still loving.  The ribbon is from my stash.  

I hope you like her, I certainly enjoyed colouring her up!

OK, that's it from me for now.  Have a great day!
