My second card of the year - and another first!

Wednesday, 14 January 2009

I've made another card for a challenge. This time it's for The Sugar Bowl and their first challenge - Sketch by Tiets. What a fab sketch and as my second ever sketch it was a challenge! But I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Here's the sketch:


A couple of other requirements are that you must use a Sugar Nellie stamp and it must not be combined with any other challenge.

So here's my card:


It includes the gorgeous pinking apples Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits which I coloured with H2O's and distress inks. The backing papers are DCWV from the Nana's Kids stack. I edged around the mats with a pink ink pad using them wee dauber yokes.
I stamped the Anita's Happy Birthday and clear embossed it and added it along with an eyelet. All mounted onto an A5 pale green stardream card.

I've been totally inspired by Rach and Bev as they decorate the inside of their cards so well. I've tried to do the same but it's not quite as good as theirs.

Here it is:


I used the same DCWV card for the inside and stamped the main image onto a mat and cut with my nesties. The sentiment is my wee Sugar Nellie freebie again!

I hope you like it!

What a lovely card and decorating the inside makes it really something special.
I've had mine for a while but those stamps are half price from the Stampman at the moment.
