Sweet Stuff

Wow! I can't believe it's Thursday already, where is the week going? I've had family to stay so haven't been able to get crafty for a few days, but last night I managed to have a play. When I was rummaging through my stamp boxes I came across a lovely little Sugar Nellie stamp that I've had for quite a while but haven't actually inked up. Also a good excuse to have a go at the current challenge over on The Sugar Bowl where the theme is Green and Purple with this lovely sketch to follow:

Sometimes I feel a little restricted when I have a sketch to follow, it seems to quash my mojo somehow, but this was a great sketch to follow and I'm really pleased with my card:

Items: 6x6 white card blank, DP Pink Petticoat, Nellie's multi frame die, nestabilities, Papermania pearls, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Sentiment from Little Claire, ProMarkers, Liquid Pearls, purple and green card from stash, stardust stickles, Memento Tuxedo Black Inkpad and Versafine Imperial Purple Inkpad.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - Sketch and Purple & Green
My Mums Craft Shop Challenges - Anything Goes (also their very first challenge)
Simon Says Stamp - Card for a Child
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Pearls
Ladybug Crafts Challenge - Celebration
