And another one!

I'm never quite sure about putting cards for more than one challenge in one post, so here is another post with another card for another challenge!  This time it's the Sugar Bowl.

I also wanted to say thank you, ladies, for the amazing quickness that my prize arrived after I won the other week.  It was here within a few days, and will be inking them up very soon.

But this time I will spare you the waffle, after all what's happened in the last 5 mins?  Not a lot!!

But I do have to waffle, it's me!  Do you ever colour an image, love it but then add it to a card and not be entirely sure about the end effect?  Well that's this one, I love the image (did I mention I love my Flexmarkers?) and I'm quite happy with the colouring this time, but when I put the whole together I wasn't sure.

So card:

Card details:

Image is a Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits - Leanne Ellis; Wild Rose (an all time favourite of mine).  Coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers (have I said I love my Flexmarkers, no?  I love my Flexmarkers!).
The papers are Basic Grey - Sultry.
The piece of twilly ribbony stuff was in my box and I've no idea where it came from!
Touch of stickles on the rose.
Craftwork Cards card blank - I've seen these loads on Vicky's blog and finally gave in and got some. They are a wonderful shape, aren't they.

This is the last card tonight, I do have another one but I don't think I'll have time to blog again tonight.  So see yas tomorrow!


Challenge is: The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 69; Gail's sketch and optional photo inspiration.  I've taken the green of the kitchen (which by the way is wonderful!) as inspiration.
