Sugar Nellie - Live Love Laugh

Good morning sugar fans! 

OMG it's April!!!! Where the heck did March go to?

Well another Wednesday has flown by and it's Sugar Nellie time. I'm writing my post early - on Sunday to be exact, because my gorgeous daughter is home for a few days. The last time I saw her was for a one day visit on Christmas Day. My hubbie drove down on Christmas Eve from the NE of England to London to collect her, and then we drove her back on Boxing Day as she had work commitments. Her visit was way too short which made us all really sad! So we are going to make up for it while she's here - and spoil her rotten.

Anyhoo I digest, here's my Sugar Nellie Design Team card for you today using one of my favourite fairy stamps called 'Live Laugh Love '; she's available to buy in digital format from Funkykits (the home of Sugar Nellie). I used my Copic pens to colour her in with, and then teamed her up with a pretty patterned paper, sequins and a few gems.
Here's What I Did
Using CraftArtist 2 I printed the sentiment and image directly onto an A4 sheet of colouring cardstock, which I cut down and folded in half. I coloured the image in with Copic pens and added glitter to her wings. Using some (Lili Of The Valley) LOTV patterned paper I added a strip to both the top and bottom of the card, which I then trimmed it with complimentary ribbon and a slither of teal card. To finish off I added a flower, gems and a few sequins.

I created the new Sugar Nellie watermark badge for all the Design Team members - I hope you like it!
