Sugar Bowl #22 - Kathy's Sketch

Good morning and welcome to another Sugar Bowl Challenge!! This time we have a lovely sketch from Kathy and her chosen option is lace ..nice and easy!!

The prize for this challenge is the brand new set of Leanne Ellis stamps. Have you seen the sneaky peeks on the Sugar Nellie blog this week?? Well Annie is back, along with a couple of her more arty style which I am a big fan of!
My card today features 'Poinsettia', one of the new Christmas Manga's. She has been coloured with copics and I have added some liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers. The music note paper is from Making Memories and is called 'Fa La La' and is fantastic. Why did I only buy one sheet of it??

The flower is made from Kraft cardstcok and retro flower punches. They are crumpled and then I have inked the edges with white acrylic I have seen so beautifully done on Kathy's cards! The pearl brad and crochet ribbon (or lace ..for this challenge..LOL) are both from Quixotic Paperie.

Thanks for stopping by. While you are reading this I will be in Glasgow meeting up with Gayle and a few others and doing some crafty shopping at the Hobbycrafts show. I can't wait to put a face to the name! I am dragging along my sister Vickie who is a fellow crafter, but not blogger. I'm afraid she might think we are all bonkers!!

back soon,
Hugs Judy xx
