The Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog - A Sketch by Marlene

Hi everyone

Hope you are all well and having a nice weekend. It's been a bit of a mixed bag here in terms of the weather. Nice one minute, pouring down the next. The computer's still playing up, despite having a fair amount of money spent on it so I hope it holds up long enough for me to post this card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge. I liked this sketch by Marlene a lot. I thought there was enough on it already by the time I had the buttons on so I didn't put anything else on except the spacer, brad and charm on the flower.

I've had this stamp for a wee while. I got a few stamps bought for me at the one time and I haven't had a chance to use her before today. I really like her so I hope it won't be too long before she's out of the box again.

I have done the inside but it's quite plain because there wasn't much paper left and it's a bit glary on the photo so I haven't bothered to show it this time.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Sugar Nellie - Rope Swing
Coloured with Distress Inks and Cosmic Shimmers
Papers are Basic Grey and Card is Coredinations
Flower, Spacer, Charm from Stash (flower is Painterly Petals, if that helps)
Buttons are Making Memories
Brad is Papermania
Lace from Hobbycraft
Tools: Cuttlebug; Swiss Dots embossing folder; Woodware corner punch

That's about it.

Can't combine this with any other challenges so I'm off to do my Just Magnolia Challenge card and have a bit of a blog hop. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for dropping by.
