The Sugar Bowl - at long last!

I haven't entered The Sugar Bowl challenge for absolutely ages - I've been keeping a note of all their sketches every fortnight, but never seem to have the time to make a card just for the fun of it. But I decided I had to make the time this time around as the sketch from Tiets is just my cup of tea. I love to make cards with loads of layers and Tiets never disappoints with her sketches.

As you all know by now, I'm a huge Sugar Nellie fan and my poor sugar babies have been very neglected of late - especially some of the ones I bought way back in January as a wee birthday present to myself and never inked up yet. So yesterday I decided to give Bubbles an airing. In case you don't know, Sugar Nellie have just released 6 more of their Home Grown Manga stamps, and they are the best yet - plus the famous goody bags are also on sale, so pop over to Funkykits and bag yourself a bargain.

I've turned Tiets' sketch on its side for my card, so that it fit the image a bit better.

Papers are all Panduro Tilda from Simply Create, cardstock is all core'dinations and in keeping with the extra requirement of the Sugar Bowl challenge I used an EK Success swirl punch, the SU word window punch and the MS Doily Lace border punch. I also used the cuttlebug Congratulations embossing folder on one of the pieces of core'dinations card and sanded it.

Here's another view of the easel card...
And her close-up.....
Is it just my kids? my girls are really funny when it comes to my cards - whenever the character on the card I'm making is a blonde girl then Faith has decided that is her, and when it's a brunette girl, that is Willow. And on the rare occassions I make a boy card - that is Scott according to them.

I'd also like to enter the following challenges with my baby card...
Dutch Dare - Easel Card + repeat something (I have repeated the swirl punch and the word window punched tabs and pearls)
Sophisti-cats - Card for a child
A Spoonful of Sugar - 3D (being an easel card and all the layers make it 3D)
Creative Inspirations - Easel Card
Daring Cardmakers - Easel Card
Crafty Catz - Spots (the spots on the polka dot papers)
By the Cute and Girly - Celebrations (of course there's no better thing to celebrate than a new baby)
Paper Play - Pastels
