Sugar Bowl Challenge

I made this card yesterday for the Sugar Bowl challenge. I love Judy's great sketch, it was really easy to work with. I used some lovely pink card for the base card and for layering. The papers are Basic Grey sultry, aren't they gorgeous? After having a go at using my new mini sewing machine last week I decided to use it again for this card. I used the lovely "Poppies" Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellies which is coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with a white Inkssentials gel pen. I think she would be perfect for a card for my little grand daughter, Poppy lol. The challenge is to include hand made flowers. I made these flowers using a punch andmy nesties shapeabilities flower bouquet miniabilities. I embossed them on the wrong side before putting them together and then added a little flower shaped brad. I used some of the DPs and plain pink card to make them. The brads and jewels are from my stash.



Has anyone heard of the Christmas RAK club? I have a link to it in my sidebar. I first read about it on Angela at Sparkly Cards blog. You need to become a follower of that blog and then follow the instructions. You will then be invited to join a private blog. There are 3 RAKs planned for September. It sounds like fun so why don't you pop over for a look.

Thanks for looking. Hope you like my card and leave a comment. I love to hear what you think - it's nice to hear from you , it really makes my day to get some feedback.
