Ah, sugar......

Well bloggers...what can I say...looks like my job wasn't done!! I really made this card for the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge but somehow it seems to have worked it's way on to the Sugar Bowl too...wonder how that happenend!! Now I couldn't crop this one down as much as I normally would do otherwise half the flower would be missing...

Now then the papers are from Echo Park - Country Drive, the image is Butterfly Girl from Simply Sassy at Sugar Nellie which I coloured with Di's. I also added some ink around the image. I also embossed the butterfly panel and added some ink to that too. I added some stitching aswell since I had extra time and a couple of punched putterflies which I inked the flower I hear you ask...yes I did...I cut each of those petals out by hand, the circle in the centre...I used the lid of my tub of face cream as a template...knew it had more use than trying to take the wrinkles out my face!! I went to town on the ink and inked up the petals too....I think it looks really summery!!

Thought I would add a closer up shot of this little cutie!! Hope you like and I have entered the challenges below.

Now I think this one is my favorite! I love the bright colors and what a great idea to use a flower as the part of the sketch! Besides, who can resist a little girl with a butterfly on her nose?
