Sugar Bowl 19

Seems ages since I managed a post but I think it was only Sunday. I was out on Monday night at the Guild. One of our own members gave a talk entitled "Granny goes to Base Camp." And if you think that means Everest you would be right. She did actually get to base camp when she was in her 50s in 2001. We were well impressed especially us younger ones!! She certainly is pretty adventurous. Last year she told us about her trip to Tibet and the Dalai Lama. Unfortunately she is now very ill and in fact she was brave enough to get out of her bed to come along and show us her photos and tell us about her trip. Amazing lady!

This is the card I made yesterday evening for the Sugar Bowl challenge. I love this image from Sugar Nellies, she is so sweet. I have used her a few times and she is so easy to colour. Even for me to colour with Promarkers!! Isn't this a lovely sketch from Marlene and I have included pink and brown as required. I used some lovely papers from Basic Grey. The base card is pink and I matted the DT onto brown and pink. I did some faux stitching round some of the edges. I used my nesties to cut out the circles and rectangles.
I inked the edges of the flowers with brown and pink and used some brads and jewels from my stash.
I'm not sure about this card. I don't think it's what I meant to make before I started!! If that makes sense. I wish it was a bit more cheerful looking but it's too late now to worry about it.
Thanks for looking.
