The Sugar Bowl ~ Challenge 15

Over at The Sugar Bowl for this fortnights challenge is a Sketch from Gayle. I think this sketch has so many possiblities, but I can not explore them all, (well not at this minute anyways, I will keep it in mind for further cards though as I think its a really good one!)

The added options this fortnight are Ribbons and/or Bows!

I got my lovely little Manga Girl 2 in the post today from Funky Kits, and have only been able to have a play with her this afternoon, and I went out for a meal with my Boyfriend and Poppy so had to finish it off when I got back.

I coloured her using my copics and then cut her out with my craft knife. I added a little blue bow opposite the flower arrangement for a little balance.

Here she is up close!
I managed to get some of the EK Success Retro Flower punches at a really good price over at The Glitter Pot (Super Fast Delivery and the cheapest I could find) and I bought some paper roses when I was out, I could only get one sheet of white, so I inked them with my Copic Pen before gluing them down.

I dont normally decorate the insides of my cards, but I loved colouring this little girl so much, I put her inside too.

~ Recipe ~
Stamps : Manga Girl 2 from (Sugar Nellie @ Funky Kits)
Paper/Card : Papermania Textured Core'dinations collection
Tools : Cuttlebug, Circle Nesties, Retro Flower Punch in Medium and Large
Embellies : Ribbon from stash tied in a bow, Gem from local art shop, Not sure of manufacturer of the roses, Buttons and Gems from stash

Thanks for popping by

This is absolutely beautiful. I have to adnit I didn't actually like the manga stamps when I saw them on the site but I LOVE what you have done with this one. The colouring and detailing throughout the whole card is amazing. Just goes to show you how wrong you can be eh?
