Sugar Bowl ~ My Sketch!!!

Sorry I am so late with this!!! I meant to do it last night but I was wrapped up in something and totally forgot!!! Be gentle with me as this is my first "made-up" sketch. Here is my take on it.... (I am having trouble uploading my picture of the sketch so you will have to go to the Sugar Bowl Blog to check it out ~ sorry) Make sure to visit the other Sweeties blogs as there cards are so pretty! I really love seeing how everyone else interprets the sketch!!
To be eligible for the prize the option this week is pearls! (And of course use a Sugar Nellie Stamp!!!!)
I decided to go with this image ~ she is soo cute and I love this image way more than I thought I would!! Love her expression and she was so much fun to color!

Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Inks: distress inks
Accessories: Pearls ~ Melissa Frances, flowers ~ Prima

The reason I was so wrapped up was yesterday while finally getting a dress I decided to pick up the Twilight book to see what all the hoopla was. Well I am the type of person that when I start a job I usually have to finish ~ just due to me being very impatient! (LOL) Well anyway I only grabbed the one book thinking it was very thick and it would take me a week anyway to finish. Well I finished it all in one reading!! I was up way late and totally forgot about the post!! (SORRY)

Anyways thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have the time to try the sketch out!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!! Hope you all have a great day ~ it is supposed to be gorgeous here for the next couple of days!!

Wonderful card - I love the vintage feel and all of the details. I finished the series of Twilight books in a week - after my daughter pestered me to "try" one forever. I thought "vampires?" how silly - silly of me!! :)

heehee, did you enjoy the book then? you'll have to read them all now - 2nd one wasn't as good but the 3rd & 4th made up for it. I've just 'discovered the HBO series 'true blood' and am hooked on that now. Have a good day Fran x
