Sassy Fairy Tale

Sugar Nellie have released so many new stamps lately that I'm having trouble keeping up. There are the fun and funky Simply Sassy range - which I have to say are soooooo my kinda thing, the Simply Adorables which are hugely popular, the very beautiful new Leanne Ellis designs and some super cute new animals in the Soft Centres.
Unfortunately I'm not made of money - more's the pity, so I've had to be pretty selective, especially as there are more stamps to be released soon. I've chosen to go with quite a few of the Simply Sassy's and all 4 of the new Soft Centres, I don't have a lot of animal stamps and these were just irresistable. Have a nosey over on Funkykits and see which are your favourites

In keeping with my wee promise to myself to enter a few challenge blogs regularly - I've made this card for the Sugar Bowl using Kiki's sketch. I coloured this image the other day, and then though "ugh, where on earth will I find papers to go with this". Well I'm a big believer in the "adapt and overcome" ethos so this is what I came up with - inspired by Ali's CAS and WOW designs

Image: Fairy Tale from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers
white green and pink cardstock is all core'dinations, I used the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and the craft concepts butterfly embossing folder. The brads and greeting are Papermania.

So I'd like to enter her into:

Fabulous Debbi!!
You certainly did 'adapt and overcome' and using the pink and green for the mats rather than papers is a fab idea and it works brilliantly.
Love how you've coloured her eyes to match with the green (I do that too )

Hugs Elaine xx
