The Sugar Bowl - anything goes

It's time for our March challenge at The Sugar Bowl and once again it's anything goes. I made a folded card following Brenda's tutorial, image is Verity from Sugar Nellie's Simply Adorable line.

I'm pretty pleased with the vintage outcome of this card. And since the digital image is pre-shaded colouring is so easy!

As always one lucky winner of this challenge gets to choose 4 sweet Sugar Nellie digis...

and
a second prize winner will receive 2 Sugar Nellie digis

(or 6 pieces, if there are over 100 entries)

Allsorts - the colour purple

Morning,
the challenge at Allsorts this week is to use the colour purple and I'm not sure why it turned out to be such a challenge for me but it's definitely not one of my prouder moments...

Anyhow, this is my contribution, using the image Butterflygirl from one of our sponsors A Day for Daisies.

This week at Allsorts the theme is Flower Power and of course I grabbed the opportunity to make a gift box :). Last picture is the box I started out with, before I decorated it with lots and lots of flowers.

Sugar Bowl - Anything goes

Since I have been offered to stay on at the Sugar Bowl team for another 4 month period - which I of course proudly accepted - it is time to show my contribution to the February challenge. It's Anything goes as long as you use a Sugar Nellie image, which isn't hard cause they're all adorable.

I used Melissa from Funky Kits, coloured her with distress inks in Stormy Sky and Milled Lavender. I embossed the sentiment in silver (which doesn't show very well, but trust me; it's very shiny) and left the image to speak for itself.

Allsorts - Lace and Pearls

Saturday means a new challenge at Allsorts and this week the theme is Lace and Pearls. My make is a gift box for our dear "sister chorus" Alba Show chorus to wish them luck in the international competition in Baltimore. We sent them a snowflake each so they could fasten it on their clothes and think of us :)
