The Sugar Bowl Challenge 14


I am entering this card in the latest Sugar Bowl Challenge. The challenge is a sketch, with the option of including sparkle.

The image I have used is Daisy on Trike, and I think she looks so gorgeous when she is coloured - this is the first time I have inked this stamp up! The sparkle I have used is gems, pink glitter board, organza ribbon, sentiment embossed with holographic embossing powder, and I have added shine to Daisy's hair, necklace and flowers with my Sakura clear stardust pen! Maybe I have gone over the top a bit with sparkle, but the card is for my 4 year old niece, who loves sparkle so I think it's allowed!!

You might notice that the matting and layering is not very even! But, I made this card last night after returning from our neighbours' barbecue (I'd had a couple of (large) glasses of wine, and I'm not very used to drinking these days - I don't think I was really very safe to be using cutting equipment - I could hardly see straight, never mind cut straight (lol!!). Anyway, I managed to get the card finished in the end, and I feel fine today!!!

This is the first time I've entered the Sugar Bowl Challenge - I'll have to make sure I look out for more!

Must go now - we have another barbecue to go to - if the weather stays fine enough!!

Bye for now!

Love from
Andrea xx

Nice card Andrea! Love the sparkle and soft pretty colors! I love the rings that hold your sentiment idea. I have uneven matting and layerings myself. No worries. Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl and hope to see you in the next one too! Have a great day!
