Sugar Bowl Challenge #4!!



Good morning every one !

Welcome to Challenge 4! The weeks are flying by! And so many of you are joining in the challenges..must be those fabby prizes...more about that in a minute!
Todays challenge is 1! That is one piece of paper. You can use one that is double sided if you wish :)
I decided to make a gatefold card as I have never done one of these before and it is nice to do something different for a change.
I decided to make my base using Kraft cardstock and I stamped Annie 'Talking to the Birds' onto this cardstock. I coloured her with prismacolor pencils and blended with Sansador. My DP is from Yellow Bicycle and is from the 'Delightful' collection.
I have stitched and distressed my papers and cardstock...can't seem to manage a card without doing that these days...looks bare if I don't!
I used some bare chipboard Maya Road flourishes and covered them with the other side of the DP. They look a bit rough and ready...it is very hard to get it covered perfectly. I sanded the edges to make the edges meet better IYKWIM??? But I didn't have a nail file so I couldn';t get into the little nooks and crannies.
The flowers are punched, with adhesive half pearls added to the centre.
For the inside I carried through the same theme and added a sentiment from Aud Designs!


I used a piece of ribbon to tie around the card so it would stay closed .
Thanks for taking the time to look. Go and check out the other 'sweeties' gorgeous examples. And did I tell you the wonderful prize the winner of challenge 4 will receive......4 packets of Hero Arts sentiments!! Now that is worth entering for !!! Perfect for use with all your fabulous Sugar Nellie stamps :)
So what are you waiting for....go create :)
Thanks for looking and thank you for all your lovely comments. I try to visit everyone who takes the time to leave a comment but my computer is so frustrating..it is always telling me that the 'page is unavailable' Grrrr.... Some days are worse than others.
Anyway have a great day...I'm on playgroup duty, so I will grin and bear it until 12:00!
