Sugar Bowl meets Dutch Dare

Ok - I'm loving the Simply Sassy Gals from Sugar Nellie. I've read somewhere that there is going to be a blog hop soon (December 4th), to showcase set three and I'm so excited!

I've used 'Little Light of Mine' and she can be found here at Funky Kits.

I'm entering this cutie into the Sugar Bowl Challenge which is another fabulous sketch and the theme of Snowflakes and the Dutch Dare Card Challenge which is Christmas Tag/Card/Ornament! - I've gone for a non traditional card.

I've kept her simple as I really want to enter the WOW competition again over on the Sugar Nellie blog - I hope I can enter twice, if not please discount this entry!!

Coloured using Distress Inks, Linen and Hammered textured white card stock, simple sky blue card stock for layering.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Snowflakes are an assortment of punches I had lying around in my drawer.

and a close up ...

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of blog land. 
Please leave a comment so I can come visit you!

Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy Round 1

Karen over at Sugar Central is holding a fabulous competition, with an unbelievable prize. 
I was in my dashboard earlier on and found it, and thought - yeah, I'l have a go. Haven't got a cats chance in hell of winning, but I've entered anyways!

Karen is offering one lucky person the chance to win a Spellbinder Grand Calibre! How cool is that! 
All you have to do to be within a chance of winning, is get your Simply Sassy Stamps that you've bought recently from Funky Kits, ink em up, colour em, and make a WOW card, that's White on White if you didn't already know hehe!
Karen wants the cards simple to show off colouring and shading skills, and to make the Simply Sassy Gals the main feature!

Well - here is my attempt - and Karen, don't shoot me ok, I know I've cheated by adding some Lace Raffia, but I have a really, really, really good excuse! I followed one of my favourite sketches from one of the Sugar Bowl Challenges which was held in July LAST year, can you believe! 

I've used plain white card for layering, and the sparkly glittered paper was from my scrap box.
Pearls were a gift from Elaine, lace raffia from Bunny Zoe Crafts.
Coloured using Distress Inks...
Swarovski Crystal gems for the centres of the flowers and a pink gem for her sock.

Here is a close up of this cutie!

Not only is Karen offering the chance to win the Spellbinder Grand Calibre, the lucky winner will also be offered a place on the Simply Sassy DT! How lush would that be! There will also be other spots available as Karen is wanting to expand the team, and why not - these gals need to be out there mingling!

I may need your votes in the near future if I get picked to go through to Round 2!

Wish me luck xx
(p.s. - dont forget my free stamp draw which I will be picking a winner tomorrow night, scroll down to my LOTV card and enter)
