A Thank you card for Sugar Nellie


I was absolutely blown away by the fact that I have been chosen as one of the Guest Designers for Sugar Nellie and just cannot wait to get creating with their new stamps, some of which have been sneak previewed on their blog site - so take a peek, they are gorgeous. http://www.sugarnellie.blogspot.com/. Anyway I thought what better way to thank them was to create a card combined with the great sketch from Katharina this week for the Papertake Challenge with one of my favourite Sugar Nellie stamps, Winter Nellie.

The papers I have used for the card this week are from the Shabby Treasures kit from Designs by Krista - I just love her kits and you will find a link to her blogsite in my list of favourite blogs.

I coloured Winter Nellie with Pro Markers, and was really impressed with the fact that you can still create lovely pastel colours with these type of pens, which I must be honest I thought only could be achieved with watercolours.

I would love your feedback as usual. xxxx

A really stunning card. Would I be right in thinking this is hybrid as in the papers, ribbons and flowers are printed?

Hi Ann,

What a beautiful card, I am sure they will be over the moon with it at Sugar Nellie.

Aren't we so lucky to have been chosen as Sugar Babes - I'm sure we will all have great fun working together with this fantastic range of stamps that seems to be growing by the day.
