Sugar Bowl Challenge *10*

This week at the Sugar Bowl Marlene has given us a beautiful sketch to work with!! I had fun coming up with this card and I am sure I will be using it again! The option for the challenge is to use buttons on your creation!This card I decided to go back to vintage ~ I have been using some brighter colors lately but I wanted to use this image and I think she is lovely in vintagey colors! To get a more distressed look I have went over all my edges with Tea Dye distress inks. I also used the Crackle liquid applique from Ranger on the circle under the flowers and also on the butterfly. I needed something more so I went around the outside egde as well and then rubbed some more distress ink on it! I really love the way it looks. I used some twinkling H20's on the flowers.

Paper: MME Bella Bella (Finally cut it!!)
Inks: Distress Inks, Twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Pearls ~ Melissa Frances, buttons ~ stash, sentiment ~ Catslife Press


Make sure to stop by and see the rest of the DT cards!! They are just fabulous as always!! You have 2 weeks to make your card and all you need is a Sugar Nellie stamp so why not jump in with the challenge!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a beautiful and brighter day that we do here! (We are getting drenched and have flood warnings to look forward to today!)
