The Sugar Bowl Challenge #66

Ooh....I am so excited this morning for 2 reasons, firstly, this is my first DT card for The Sugar Bowl. What started as a bit of fun on Facebook led to bigger and better things so you never know ladies. The lovely Gayle asked Cathy and I if we would like to join The Sugar Bowl Design Team...well how could either of us turn that down....are we mad!! NO!!

So this fortnight we have Marlena's fabulous sketch below...

...and of course the optional theme which is "for the girls".
One lucky winner chosen at random will receive 4 stamps of their choice but wait for it...if we get more than 100 entries then it will be 6 fab is that??

For my card I have used a few of my favourite things...the image is Gorjuss Flower Girl from Sugar Nellie, which you can buy here from Funky Kits, I coloured her using the feathering technique with copics and then cut her out to give her a 3d effect on the card, the papers are MME - Blush collection. I added some buttons, a flower and a little message which is also from the same MME collection, I finished with a touch of stickles around the edges of the layers...oh yes which I stitched!! hope you like my first DT card for the Sugar Bowl.

My second reason for being excited is because today marks the start of our Sneak Week... hop on over to The Sugar Nellie blog to check out what the sweeties are giving you a little peek of..
