Sugar Bowl challenge #2

Hi all

Ooooops I made a booboo.
I missed the deadline for the Sugarbowl challenge this week, even though I had my card finished in time, I was working so much I didn't have time to post it. But even though it's late, I thought it deserved to be shown. So here goes.

The challenge was to use three different papers, and three different embellishments. I used Kay & Co, and Hot Off The Press papers. I cheated a bit as I cut up one of the papers, and just used the images from it.....The little grape hyacinth's peeking from behind the matted image were cut from one of the Kay & Co papers, as was the tiny butterfly just above Daisy's head. So I did use a third patterned paper, but not in its printed form. Artistic licence I would say.

My three embellishments are of course the white organza ribbon, which was simply two pieces tied together in a knot. Then the Prima flower, and the Sugar Frosted Doodlebug brad.

I embossed the pearlised lilac card with a cuttlebug folder, and added a little crystal glitter to the curves of the embossing, although you can't really see it on the photo.

I'll try and do better next time, and actually get it posted in time.
