The Sugar Bowl DT card

Hey folks...a tad late with my post, I was so busy getting the rest of the team and the challenge organised that I completely forgot about my own post, so that's me home and now sorted!!

So there's a brand new challenge over at The Sugar Bowl......and some exciting news so pop on over and check it out.

As always the prize for one lucky winner picked at random is 4 Sugar Nellie stamps from FunkyKits...

...over 100 entries then that prize increases to 6 Sugar Nellie stamps...

Please remember to use a Sugar Nellie stamp...rubber or digi to be eligible. 

For my card I used Belle Flower from the Leanne Ellis range at Funky Kits.  I coloured her with copics and then did some shading with polychromos.  The papers are Echo Park Tis the Season and I used my favourite die-namics die to make that fabby flower...I added a ribbon bow fastened with a button and twine.
