The Sugar Bowl

Do you like my new look blog! Thought it was time for a change and with some gentle instruction from my mate Minxy (who has a great candy up for grabs) I'm now all pink and cute.

I haven't entered The Sugar Bowl for quite some time. Infact, I think I've only ever played once before and that was a very long time ago. But I loved Tiets sketch and was eager to ink up this gorgeous SN Stamp. I've coloured it with Copic Markers and the papers are all Basic grey Eskimo Kisses. The Photo Corners are a little punch I have and the other dies were cut out on my MM Slice. And for a change, I actually decorated the inside. Nothing too fancy but I did like using the matching paper. Again the die shape was cut out on the MM Slice.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out and am sure to be using this fantastic sketch again.
Hope to be back with another card tomorrow
Thanks for Stopping!
