The Sugar Bowl # 11 - A Sketch

This week over at The Sugar Bowl there is a fab sketch to work with provided by Kathy. It really is a great layout and I think I'll be using it again in the future. The extra option is to use pearls, so I used liquid pearls for edging and some lovely pearl buttons for the flower centres and image corners.

I must admit, I haven't really used these Basic Grey Eva papers much but I'm so glad I picked them out today. They really are nice and the shades of pink and green are quite unusual. I was able to use this Gorjuss image courtesy of my matey Jo, who kindly sent me a bundle to play with. What would we do without our friends to share with?!

The challenge prize this week is amazing - no less than six stamps of your choice from Funky Kits. WOW! Hop over and check it out in more detail and take a look at the cards the girls have come up with, they're so inspiring.

Image - Sugar Nellie Gorjuss
Sentiment - Studio G
Papers - Basic Grey Eva
Colouring - Copics
Embossing - Cuttlebug Folder
Die - QuicKutz Vine and BossKut Daisy
Embellishments - Pearl Beads from stash
Accents - Liquid Pearls

I've been changing beds and cleaning the oven today - that's what a girl gets up with when she has an extra day off. Whoopidoo!! We'll have to have butties for tea - after all that grafting nobody and nothing is going to mess up my oven now!!

Chris said...

Hi Tara, I love your card, such a gorgeous colour scheme with the BG papers and your wonderful colouring! Great design and the punched flowers and leaves are so pretty! Sounds like you've spent your day off on hard toil :(, know how you feel, most of the last two days I've been repeatedly cleaning plaster off walls, floors cabinets and everywhere else that plaster lands from having our ceilings skimmed, if I'd know this before I would never have had it done, I'm cream crackered, but they do look nice and smooth. Hopefully now you can enjoy your weekend with less to do, but I doubt it LOL! Have a good one anyway. Hugs, Chris xxx

Gorgeous card Tara! I have also made a card with this sketch and really enjoyed using it {after I initially thought it was a little complicated!}. I am going to upload my card when I finish work later! Love these BG Eva papers as well! I also have these and have never used them! Must recify that! :-)
Enjoy your BH weekend!
Hugs, Vicky -x-
