Warm Wishes And Blog Candy Winner!

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good day, it's nearly weekend so what could be bad about it eh ;o).

I have an easel card to share with you today, I'm entering this in the Sugar Bowl challenge which is a lovely sketch by Marlena! The prize, as always, is a fantastic one: you know how Sugar Nellie is the sweetest Scottish stamp company around right? Well, on 1 July they're unleashing these gorgeous Sherbet Pips onto us poor greedy stampers, and guess who'll be first in line at Funky Kits to get her inky paws on them? That's :D! Anyway, the prize they're giving away for this challenge is the whole set of Sherbet Pips for one lucky winner!

Aren't they just the most gorgeous gals you've ever seen?!?!

Onto the card before you lot start thinking I'm working on commission here ;o). This is the first time I've tried colouring on kraft cardstock and I must say, I thought it would be a lot harder! Granted, the hat ribbon colour isn't like that in real life, but otherwise it doesn't look half-bad methinks :D.

The layers of punched paper strips on the bottom of the card is an idea I got from the very talented Michelle, she did this on labels which is even more effective!

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Sugar Nellie stamp "Pickin' Apples"; sentiment by CC Designs
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock; Kaisercraft design paper "English Rose"
Embellishments: Zva Creative pearl swirls; Kars adheshive pearls; Papertrey Ink ribbon
