The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 16

If you are like me, sometimes you make a card that you struggled with, but that you are really proud of. Well, this is one of those cards. You see, I've always had difficulty putting lots of different pattern papers together (even from the same collection) and have always fretted that it was too much, or that the design looked overloaded. However, for this one, I literally forced myself to get on with it, and I'm so pleased I did as I love the result! :o)

I followed the sketch for this weeks challenge over on The Sugar Bowl. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any doodling in, not because it scares me (!), but because it didn't really fit the style of my card. Hope my entry still counts!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Sugar Nellie, Sentiment by Whiff of Joy.
Paper: Classic K 'Bailey' by K & Co, Bazzill 'Kraft' CS.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities, Fiskars Apron Lace punch, gems, ribbon and button from stash.

Best dash, I'm off to see some of Ali's family today and I still need to put me face on!
