It's that time again!
Where does the fortnight go?
Sugar Bowl challenge time and here's my take on Marlene's sketch.


And Marlene's sketch:
And here colour scheme:



I love this shabby chic kitchen, very rustic.
I wish mine looked like that! 
Mmmm there's an idea.  LOL

Anyway onto my card.
It's an easel card adjusted slightly to take into account my Martha Stewart Punch around the page see previous post for measurements.
I have used craft textured card and white washed it with acrylic paint.  I then used a Martha Stewart PATP Vintage lace.
My other papers are from Making Memories MM Kids collection SAM and a white paper Dollie.
Martha Stewart deep edge punch Blossom eyelet, flower from Prima and ribbon from stash.
Spellbinder nestabilities Lacey circles is also hiding behind my dollie.
The stamps I have used are Sugar Nellie Joy and Hero Art Treasure the moments.
Finally the bling is from Zva create and I have inked edges with Ranger distress ink Vintage photo.

Thanks Marlene for a great challenge, I loved this one....hope you do too.
Oh and before I leave I must not forget to mention the prize....the most important bit after all.
Well there are two prizes again this challenge, two sets of a choice of 6 Sugar Nellie stamps. 
Remember you've got to be in it to win it!!
Happy crafting and I look forwards to seeing your take on Marlene's sketch.

Beautiful card Erika.

I love the punched edges to the card and the distressing....totally fab!
I'm not very good at distressing so I love to see other folks cards who are so much better at it than me.

Love Elaine xx
