Sugar Bowl and Cute Card Thursday challenges


The current challenge over a the Sugar Bowl is to make something for Mother's Day. I decided to make a card keeper for my mum which I can fill with some handmade cards for her to use for her friends. I got the instructions from The Scrapbook Lounge ages ago but never got round to using them. The papers I have used are by Dovecraft and the cardstock is Bazzill. I have used one of the Sugar Nellie stamps by designer Leanne Ellis and coloured the image with watercolour pencils. Isn't she sweet? The ribbon is Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip grosgrain. I then made some flower embellishments using Retro Flower punches and some gold brads.

This week's sketch over at Cute Card Thursday was great. I decide to use it to make a Mother's Day card for my mum-in-law. The papers are Sparkly Sweet by K & Co and the cardstock is Bazzill. The Tilda image was wateroloured using my Derwent pencils and the little piece of ribbon is from my stash.
