Yey, My Sugar Nellie Card

Wowsa, look who's on the Sugar Nellie me!!

I know I usually create a monthly Design Team card for The Sugar Bowl challenge blog. However, the Sugar Bowl sweeties were asked if we'd like to create a card especially for the Sugar Nellie blog this month as well.....and of course I said YES. So gulp, here it is.  I hope you like it!

OMG I hope it's up to the high standard that's expected over at Sugar Nellie's; the cards shown there are always stunning.

I made this sweet little shaped card using a Sugar Nellie digital stamp and coloured her in with my Copics, to add a little bit of sparkle I added a touch of glitter to her wings.  I covered the base card in patterned paper and added a little distressing ink around the edges. I then die cut a small border strip, and added the matted image onto circles. To soften the edge of the main image I used some pan pastel. I love making my own handmade flowers as they always give such a personal touch, so I die cut a few different types plus a few leaves.  To finish her off I added a little gem to her hair, some pearls to the flowers and a cute yellow flower button.
Here's what I used:
Digital Stamp:  'A Little Bit Of Gossip' from the Return To Fairy Glen Release available from Funkykits.
Paper/Cardstock: Dovecraft 'Garden Party', Orange, Green & Pink CS, Craftwork Cards - Shaped Card Base 
Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R30 / Hair - YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13, E18, E25 / Dress, Flower Centres & Shoes - Y000, Y00, Y15, Y38 / Cardigan & Flowers - R81, R85, 00 / Ladybird - R81, R35 / Leaves - G21, G82, G14, 00
Dies: Tonic layering circle dies, Joanna Sheen's Signature dies,  Small and Medium Britannia 'Multi Rose' Dies, Marianne Designs 'Swirl Rose' and Tattered Lace 'Embellishment' dies.
Other: TH Distressing Ink - Worn Lipstick, Pan Pastels - Turquoise, Gem, Pearls, Button, Graph' It Blender Sheet
I hope you like my first creation for Sugar Nellie. Why not join us over at the Sugar Bowl there's still time to enter the December challenge. So come on down!!!
