A lovely sunny day


The weather here is gorgeous today - and I can see buttercups, grass and trees in all directions.

So today I have made this card for the SCS Sugar Nellie Challenge.  This week the challenge was NO EMBELLISHMENTS!!... eeek!  I have said before, I'm definately not a 'less is more' kind of girl, so I have had to be very strict and walk away :) lol. 

I followed the sketch from the allsorts challenge, as I felt it gave me good scope and inspiration for keeping it layered, yet simple.  I used 'Dreamy Manga' from the Sugar Nellie range, and K&Co Brenda Walton papers.  I used my cuttlebug to die cut and emboss, and have inked the edges with gold.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Great sketch for this card!
Paperplay Challenges - Something old.  I have had this K&Co paper for at least 4 yrs, and the parchment card easily as long.
A Spoonful of Sugar - Enjoying the sunshine - Buttercups, grass and sunshine in this card. :)
Forever Friends - Not a Forever Friends image.

Hope everyone else is managing to enjoy the weather.

Thanks for looking xx

Love her socks & bows & the way you've done the highlights. Great use of the sketch for SCS & that embossing folder is a treat - more for my list.......but this Manga just will have to jump into my basket next Sugar visit.
