The Sugar Bowl Challenge

One of the reasons I wanted to start this blog was so I could join in all the fun bloggers seem to have, including the blog challenges. This is my very first blog challenge, so it works very nicely that this is also the first sketch challenge over at The Sugar Bowl, the new challenge blog for Sugar Nellie stamps. These stamps come all the way from Scotland (have I mentioned that I do too?) and these little lovelies have been in my stash for quite some time now, so it's good to be challenged in to using them.

I can totally see why people get addicted to these sketch challenges! I was a little "challenged" to get all the different layers of paper on the card (may have cut them too big to begin with) so my finished product may be more in the spirit of the sketch rather than technically correct, but isn't inspiration the whole point of the challenges?

It's also a fantastic way to use up paper scraps. Most of what you see here is Basic Grey - I can never get myself to throw any of that delicious paper in the trash can......

Sugar Nellie is also the newest member company over on SCS. Check out their forum and find out all about them!
