Sugar Bowl #20 - Gayle's Sketch

Good morning and welcome to Challenge #20 at the Sugar Bowl!! The weeks are just flying in!
This week Gayle has created for us another super sketch with the extra option of paper piecing. Thanks my dear! Loved it!

This time you can win a pick 'n' mix of your choice of stamps from Sugar Nellie. Woooo!

Now, I decided it was high time I stepped out of my comfort zone of square cards and made a 3D project. I want to thank Tab for the inpsiration. A few weeks ago on her blog I spied a wonderful chocolate box that she had made and I knew I would have to try one of them very soon!
So I had a go! Now all my presents are going to have to arrive in a box ...I can't go back to plain old wrapping paper again.

For my chocolate box I used one of the 'It's a Girl Thing' fundraiser stamps from Sugar Nellie from which 100% the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Research.

I used the beautiful stamp donated by Diane Duda called 'Pure of Heart'.

I sooooooo love this stamp and I will use it again and again!! I paper pieced it with some glittery Doodlebug paper and coloured the rest of her in with copics and prismas. I love using a mixture of them both on my images now!

The stitching round the image is faux. My sewing machine was playing up and making everything it is in disgrace for the time being!

The flowers have been glimmer misted and I scrunched up a Tim Holtz ticket for the sentiment.

Don't forget to stop by the other girls blogs for some fantastic inspiration! You won't be disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by! I love to read all your lovely comments :)
