Marlene's sketch



This card is my entry for the Sugar Nellie SCS  forum challenge.  This week we had an 'anything goes' challenge - which was great.  I just finished my exams this week and I was running out of time :)

This sketch was from the Sugar Bowl and its a sketch by Marlene.  I found this a real challenge, the sketch is great, but could I cut out an octagon??....could I heck!  :) It drove me nuts, and took 7 attempts, but I dont like to let something like that beat me.  I tried the 'draw a circle and divide it up' method, but that just made me cross!! :D  Anyway, I have decided that I dont have enought nesties!

I am also entering this in the below competitions:
Charisma Cardz - All about bling - dont need much of an excuse for that!! :)
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Nice and girly
Sir Stampalot - Punch it - I just love MS punches! I have layered them on this project.

For this card I used a Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Reflective' by Elisabeth Bell,  I used K&Co papers (Brenda Walton), a hand-made dangly, vellum butterflies, and paper flowers.

Brilliant - I knew you were trying to get it done & I love how you've interpreted the sketch. Now that gives me something to think about - using only part of the image.......& that decorative jewelled charm is delightful.
