Sugar Bowl & Friday Sketchers challenges

The Sugar Bowl challenge this week is to use three different design papers and three different types of embellishments. I followed the wonderful sketch by Mumur on Friday Sketchers and used the Simply Elegant papers by Papermania. Daisy is coloured with pastels and for some silly reason her top looks more red than magenta in the photograph. My three embellishments are the clip holding the sentiment, the flower, ribbon and a pin holding the ribbon on. I know - I can cound that's four and if you count the ribbon on the inside - that's five. I don't always know when to stop.


Materials
Cardstock - core-dinations
Papers - Papermania - Simply elegant
Image - Sugar Nellie - Daisy
Derwent pastels
Sentiment - Penny Black
The rest from stash

Hi Rica!

FAB-U-LOUS card!!

How funny, we've both made really similar cards! I, too, have combined the sketch at Friday Sketchers with the theme at The Sugar Bowl ... and I see that we've also used the same SN image! LOL! Great minds think alike, eh?!

I love the paper you've used - I have the Papermania Simply Elegant paper pack too, but keep forgetting I've got it! :o)

Anyway, all your cards rock!

Hugs, Sem x
