Sugar Bowl Challenge 17

Hi again everyone,
Now I have a card today that IS in time for the challenge. It's over at The Sugar Bowl, and is a sketch, with the added challenge of making your own flowers. There is a fab prize on offer for two lucky people, a full set of the brand new Sugar Nellie Autumn Stamps, WOW, a full set. it's gotta be worth a go don't you think?
So for my card I've used one of the Manga Kids. I adore these, and have the first full set, but this is the first time I've used any of them. I love 'em, and they're a dream to colour. Take a look.


The colour scheme of pink and green is one of my favourites, although these ones are much more sultry shades from Bo Bunny, and I love 'em. The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up! I love the handwritten look of these stamps.

My flower is truly hand made. First I crocheted a flower using cotton thread. The pink and black flower I made using Fimo modelling clay. Something I'm experimenting with just lately. I combined them and Voila, a handmade flower to order. I've made quite a few from Fimo, and am going to try different colour combinations, so watch this space for something a bit different.

Take care, and happy crafting.
