The Sugar Bowl Challenge # 4



Good evening everyone!

I managed to squeeze in a card today, in between cleaning the house (boo) and taking the kids to the dentist. No fillings, YAY!

This card is for the Sugar Bowl challenge, where the brief this week is to use only one patterned paper. Well that can be trickier than you think when you enjoy mixing and matching, but that's why it's a challenge after all!

I even had a play with my Polys for the colouring and was fairly pleased with the results for a change!!



Materials:
Image - Leanne Ellis
Sentiment - Clear Choice Stamps
Papers - Basic Grey Granola
Embossong - Cuttlebug Borders
Dies - QuicKutz Leaf
Colouring - Polychromatic Pencils
Flowers - Prima
Embellishments - Lace, Pin and Roses from my stash
Accents - Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Rangers Glossy Accents

Hop over and have a look at this week's challenge if you get time, the prize they're giving away is AMAZING!!
