Well I just couldn’t help myself, I thought I would have another bash at the first challenge of the Sugar Nellie Challenge of this year on   http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/ – maybe this means I’ve got one in hand if I miss a challenge this year)

I have used the same papers as the last card and have used another Leanne Ellis stamp which I have bonded with in the last few weeks.

I made the big flowers by copying the smaller flower in her hair and have put swarovski crystals and seed beeds hanging from the large flower.

Hope you like X

This is the first challenge I have ever entered. As it’s a new year I thought I would make another resolution to do ALL of the Sugar Nellie challenges throughout the year…I can but try. I have used one of the new Leanne Ellis stamps which I won in the blog candy draw ( Thanks again you sweeties)

The link to the challenge is here… http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/

I have used My Minds Eye Paper from called “The Laundry Line” and although you probably can’t see it, all the sheet have really subtle glitter on them. I ahve used Got prints Prima flowers, flat back pearls, and swarovski crystals, a piece of ribbon from a box of choccies ( I’m all into reycling) and last but by no means least a metal engraved tag which says Much Appreciation.
