My New Leanne Ellis for The Sugar Bowl

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you had a lovely weekend; we were bathed in sunshine this weekend but paid the price today as it's been raining since I got up this morning!

I managed to do a bit of crafting yesterday, and wanted to use one of my new stamps from Sugar Nellie, designed by Leanne Ellis...


I used the fab sketch by Lia over at The Sugar Bowl, so will enter this card into the challenge to win some lovely Sugar Nellie stamps. I used Promarkers to colour the image and all the papers are from a Papermania pack (Simply Elegant) that I haven't used for ages. I've added some special details...


The love charm and pink safety pin are from my stash, the pearl brad is Papermania and the spacer is from The Hobby House. The sentiment is from a little roll of ribbon I found in a cute gift shop while on holiday in Arundel, Sussex. I think it's just great for adding a little message to a card...

Oh this is gorgeous Shelly :)

I'm feeling a bit better, thanks love, the break is doing me good.

The flowers are so easy, you punch a cirle and cut into it creating a spiral, leaving about a 6mm centre ( so you have a base which to glue it all together ) Then with a quilling tool you roll it up and tuck the base underneath and glue. I'm terrible at explaining, lol. xx

Such a nice card entry you had for the sugar bowl Minkie! I love the colors and the papers! I had fun playing the Sugar bowl as well.

I think you should definitely give it a try at Midnight Madness Sketch, your cards have beautiful color, and not to mention up to $500 prize they are giving, each week's entry is one more chance at the pot.
