A card for Mummy...


Hi Ladies

Today it's my DT card for The Sugar Bowl Challenge - the theme is 'Mother's Day/Special Lady' - and I was asked to do a card for a little girl to give to her Mummy...  

I chose to use a digi image...  Princess..  and although the colours show purple on the photograph, they are more a muted lavender in real life!  Cameras do lie!

Materials used:
Papers: First Edition New Bloom (from my lovely OH at Christmas)
Colouring: Copics V000, V01, V06, V12 and Promarker Fuschia Pink
Shading Copics N0, N2, N4
Dies: L'il Inkers Stitched Rectangles, MFT Dienamics Flower Trio, La la Land Stitched Tab
Lace, Seam Binding, Pearls and Glitter from stash
Sentiment done on PC

Hope you like my card and will pop over to The Sugar Bowl to see what the lovely ladies on the DT have come up with..  then we'd love to see your entries for a special lady using a Sugar Nellie image.  Don't forget you can win a fabulous prize of some gorgeous rubber stamps  if your card is chosen as the winner!
