Sugar Bowl Challenge #11


Here's my entry for the Sugar Bowl Challenge. Kathy provided a yummy sketch and then an additional challenge in the form of something which must be incorporated in to your card. This time it was pearls, which I added to the center of my flowers and then along the border. I used one of my Leanne Ellis stamps from Sugar Nellie. The papers are from the Basic Grey Sultry collection, and I also used my MS punch, my CB embossing folder, my Nestie die and my SU corner punch. Phew.... This is why I don't normally list the recipe....
I've had the card done for about a week now, but I'm squeaking in by the skin of my teeth to actually link it before time is up on the challenge because I haven't stopped all weekend. It was all good though - I had company come in to town, a graduation party to attend and I'm still trying to get halfway organized for my upcoming trip.
Barring some extra hours appearing in the day, this will probably be my last post for a while because I will gone for TWO weeks!! And I suspect when I get back, the first order of the day won't be card making (much as I might like it to be) but laundry. You all be good while I'm gone!!
