I've had a few days away in Sheffield visiting the outlaws, but am back now and missing my crafting! I've dug out an image which I don't think I've used before called Golden Nector by Sugar Nellie which is perfect for the new challenge which starts today at the Sugar Bowl.

There's also a dies and/or punches challenge starting today at In The Pink so I've used a stitched circle nesting die as well as a Cottage Cutz Blossom Branch die which has only had a few outings since I had to buy it a few years ago.  I think it's perfect for the floral themed image and papers.

I've printed a curved sentiment onto vellum and tucked it behind the image panel and popped some pearl dots and white gel pen into the flower centres to give them some definition.

A gorgeous card Annette... another of my favourite Sugar Nellie images and coloured perfectly. And I really must have a go at curving a sentiment - it always looks so good!

Morning Annette, this is an exquisite card. Your design is beautiful and everything is put together so perfectly. I love your colouring though - that is a wonderful image and your colour work is amazing. I love the sparkly bits on her frock too. Hope you are enjoying your break.
