Sugar Nellie Design Team Card - Let Them Eat Cake

Good morning sugar fans! 

Wow, another has Wednesday and spring has definitely disappeared. We had snow yesterday and today what the heck is going on!!!

So for my Sugar Nellie Design Team card I thought I would make a cheery but simple card to cheer you all up. I decided to use 2 of my favourite cardmaking colours - lilac and lemon. This sweet little Sugar Nellie stamp is called 'Let Them Eat Cake 'and she's available to buy from Funkykits (the home of Sugar Nellie). I used my Copic pens to colour her in with and then teamed her up with a few of my new dies and a sprinkling of sequins. Erm, I don't think I went too over the top with the sequins --- or maybe I have!! Lol, I'm such a magpie, I just can't resist a bit of sparkle. :)

Here's What I Did
I started with a 5" x 7" white card base which I covered with LOTV patterned paper. I stamped my image onto Neenah cardstock and used Copic markers to colour it in with; this was then cut to size. I die cut the word 'happy' in white card and a speech bubble curve in lilac card on which I stamped the rest of the sentiment. The bubble was then glued directly onto my white topper and added to my card base using foam tape. To finish off I added some sequins and a touch of glitter.
