Sugar Bowl Challenge 13

Over at the Sugar Bowl this week there is a fabulous sketch by Lillian to follow with the option of using kraft or brown and cream. I have no kraft items so I went with the brown and cream look!

I felt the need to use another gorjuss girl as I hadn't used one for a while.... it must be all of two weeks!!! and I decorated an envelope to go with the card too as a nice finishing touch. My image is coloured with distress inks and the papers are from papermania.

I used the sketch as an influence for the inside too and a partial image of the gorjuss girl. The sentiment on the front was computer generated and all the embellishments are from my stash.

For those of you who are regular visitors, you will have noticed that I'm faffing about with my post layouts once again! Since all the blogger problems and I changed my browser to firefox, my posts in their old format weren't as easy to do. I will settle on something eventually!.

Card/Paper: Cream and Brown card, Papermania - Antique Cream
Stamp: Sugar Nellie - Just a girl
Colouring: Distress inks - walnut stain, vintage photo, tattered rose, antique linen, weathered wood and worn lipstick.
Embellishments: Prima, PM pearl brad, pearl, ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, leone em branch punch, water brush.
Thanks for looking. x
